PArTy To­dAy, PAniC To­mor­row ñ

Sec­ond City’s lat­est re­vue gets big laughs with sketches about ev­ery­thing from the war be­tween cy­clists and driv­ers to Wine Rack em­ploy­ees’ lack of ex­per­tise. Di­rec­tor Les­lie Seiler pro­vides cre­ative ap­proaches to sketches, whether it’s in a quick bit about racial pro­fil­ing or a scene about women’s bod­ies. The cast works beau­ti­fully to­gether and a few do their best work yet. New­com­ers Na­dine Djoury and Al­lana Reoch are in­valu­able, es­pe­cially Reoch as a baseball-ob­sessed fa­ther of the bride and a spin-class in­struc­tor who chan­nels ev­ery­one’s anx­i­ety. Lim­ited run, TueThu 8 pm, Fri-Sat 7:30 & 10 pm, Sun 7:30 pm. $26 & up. Sec­ond City, 51 Mercer. 416-3430011, sec­ond­c­ity.com. nnnn (Glenn Sumi)
