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.
