Sex & The Second City

I recently saw Sex and The Second City at the Alliance Theatre’s Hertz Stage.  Though I was familiar with The Second City through their famous alumni, I wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of a production–a mix of improv and traditional theater, Sex and The Second City was supposed to veer slightly from The Second City’s usual brand of improvised comedy, sticking to a semblance of plot and supporting a structure, no matter how wobbly.

Ultimately, I was less enthused by the writing than I was with the performances, which were hilarious in some key moments, though most often falling short of a real “LOL.”
