Soothing Sounds at Second City

The Second Citythe legendary improvisational comedy enterprise that launched the careers of Joan Rivers, Bill Murry, Mike Myers, Steve Carell, and Stephen Colbert, is staging a new show with a nod to Raymond Scott's groundbreaking 3-volume SOOTHING SOUNDS FOR BABY album series. Creator Robert Carter explains: "We realized that 'Soothing Sounds for Baby' fit as the title of the show and as a subtle tribute to Raymond Scott for those who recognized it. We do use the title ironically, however, since the tone is what could be described as cartoonishly dark. Although the show isn't directly a tribute to him, we do give Mr. Scott a tip of the hat; using a snippet from 'Tempo Block' in one of our scenes." Details & tickets: here
