the Best Is yet to Come unDone is the ñ
best Second City revue I’ve seen in years. The troupe takes on everything from #MeToo and systemic racism to minor irritations, but each sketch aims high – and gets laughs. Even premises that start out familiar go to unexpected places. Under director Carly Heffernan, who mixes styles and rhythms expertly, the cast is superb, with especially strong work by Stacey McGunnigle, Chris Wilson and Brandon Hackett. Limited run, see website for times. $27 & up, stu from $16.
