Join us for 
Talkback Thursdays!

Ticketholders attending Thursday night performances on 
April 6, 13, & 20
are welcome to participate in an informal Q&A discussion with members of the cast in the theatre!

From the high-brow to the low, this fast-paced ride covers comedy through the ages, from Aristophanes to Shakespeare, Moliere to Vaudeville, Charlie Chaplin to The Daily Show. Find answers to the age-old questions, "Who's on first?" and "Why did the chicken cross the road?"

"A wild, wild ride!  It's funny.  Really, really funny…and most of all, it's really, really smart."
– Cincinnati Enquirer

"The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) is a master class in the art form." – Broadway World

"Audacious, often outrageous and bawdy, the frantic pacing of  "Comedy" reminds you of an old-time burlesque or vaudeville review." – Boston Stages
