About The Show

Do You Believe in Madness? hilariously examines how we’re all gleefully speeding towards a modern apocalypse in this brand new revue from The Second City.

From hot-button issues in our own backyards to the unstable atmosphere and beyond, this show aims its sights on everything from legalizing weed to infiltrating Facebook; breaking down Brexit to building new relationships; navigating new parenthood to navigating our current political landscape.

Come together to laugh at the ways we’re all the same and shamelessly skewer our differences in today’s confounding world, where super villains sound logical and the sweet sounds of the ukulele lull you further and further into the madness.
