Daily Rehearsal: 'Tigers Be Still' produces hip playbill art
1. Tigers Be Still opens at Theater Wit April 26: "Meet Sherry," the theater tells us, "a recent college graduate with a master's degree in art therapy. But like so many 20-somethings who find themselves back at home, here she sits, unemployed, overwhelmed and dealing with her crazy family. Happily, things begin to brighten up when she gets hired as a high school art teacher. Now if only the principal would leave his rifle at home, her sister would get off the couch, her mother would come downstairs, her first patient would just do one of his art therapy assignments, and someone would catch the damned tiger that just escaped from the local zoo, everything would be perfect." Very hip playbill art.
4. What's your improv group name? The A.V. Club helps you decide. "How zany," notes one commenter.
5. About Second City's 100th revue Jason Heidemann writes, "It's an energetic and pleasing revue bolstered by a strong cast, while unfortunately breaking little new ground. Director Matt Hovde (Absolute Best Friggin' Time of Your Life, Sky's the Limit) is more interested in celebrating the Second City mold than challenging it...." Sounds like the performances were generally strong, though.
