Northridge, CA: The Second City Comedy Troupe -- the comedy group that launched the careers of Mike Myers, Bill Murray, Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Jim Belushi, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and countless others -- will come to the Plaza del Sol Performance Hall (formerly The Performing Arts Center) at California State University, Northridge, as part of their special U.S. College Tour, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30. Performing a special medley of classic scenes, songs, and improvisation, the Second City's National Touring Company is always original, daring, and hilarious.
Special "front-center orchestra" tickets are being held for Cal State Northridge Faculty and Staff who purchase their tickets by November 17. Tickets, usually $45, can be purchased for $35 with campus ID at the Ticket Office, located in the Plaza del Sol Student Union, or by calling 818 677-2488. Students can purchase tickets for only $20 with student/ID, also at the Ticket Office.
Almost all Second City actors got their start in the Touring Company, also including Bonnie Hunt, Jeremy Piven, Martin Short, Stephen Colbert, Halle Berry, Sean Hays, John Belushi, Eugene Levy, Dan Aykroyd, John Candy, Shelly Long, Fred Willard, George Wendt, Tim Meadows and Dan Castellaneta (the voice of Homer Simpson)-to name a few.
"What do love, Iraq and rap music producers have in common? They're all targets of the Second City, the infamous comedy/improv troupe from Chicago," writes Anna Rosenstein in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "It's like the Harvard of improvisational theater. That should assure you that the current class is some of the best and brightest. Sure, cheesy humor isn't beneath them and not a one will skip a sexual innuendo if the opportunity presents itself. Anything for a laugh! And the laughs come fast and furious," she adds.
The Performing Arts Center is located off the west side of Zelzah Avenue, between Prairie and Plummer Streets in the Plaza del Sol complex. Patrons should use Parking Lot G4 and follow the orange signs to the ticket office, located under the PAC staircase.
