Supposedly Funny Performance Announced With Deeply Unfunny Press Release

Posted By on Tue, Nov 16, 2010 at 10:28 AM

Arizona Theatre Company is bringing the Second City traveling troupe to Arizona again for a show called Sex and the Second City: Version 2.0, which is in itself not a bad thing. I heard decent things about their previous show, and while this show has a troublesome title, it could be funny, right?

You wouldn't get that idea from the press release, however. ATC's artistic director does a great job of bringing quality productions to town, but he probably should leave the humor to the experts.

"The other day, I opened a door at the theatre and I swear I could still hear the last vestiges of laughter echoing around from The Second City show at ATC last spring," said Artistic Director David Ira Goldstein. "You would think that after we provided them with a comedy bonanza last time they visited, The Second City folks would leave Arizona alone. But, apparently they feel that they struck comedy gold here in the Grand Canyon State and this time they are aiming straight for our private parts in a very public forum. New York may have 'The Rent Is Too Damn High Party,' but it looks like Arizona has started 'This Place Is Too Damn Funny Party.' And the party gets underway next March."

Sigh.

You can mark your calendar to see Sex and the Second City: Version 2.0 at the Temple of Music and Art on March 23-27, 2011.
