Chemically Imbalanced Comedys hilarious show "Bad Review"comes to the Lakeshore for one
night only on June 15
Chicago- The Lakeshore Theaters artistic director Chris Ritter, together with
Paul Provenza, director of the hit film The Aristocrats, presents Chemically
Imbalanced Comedys hit improv theater show Bad Review for one night only on
Friday, June 15 at the Lakeshore Theater, 3175 N. Broadway.
Recently Chemically Imbalanced Comedy performed our show "Bad Review" as part of the Downtown festival Looptopia on May 11 at the Chase Auditorium. We were told that over 100 people got turned away from the show and were not able to view it because it was sold out. So CIC has partnered with The Lakeshore Theater to present an Encore Presentation of "Bad Review" for only $5 for all those folks who were unable to attend the show, as well as those who did attend and would like to come again!
"Bad Review" takes the worst Review from the Chicago Reader and we Improvise the show we feel the Critic would have rather seen.
Here is what the Press says about Bad Review:
The Chicago Reader Review: Each week this Chemically Imbalanced Comedy team selects a disparaging theater review from the latest Reader and performs an hour-long improvisation of "the show we feel the critic would have rather seen." When I went, they read aloud Zac Thompson's review of Invasion of the Minnesota Normals (which he said "tries to make a case for individuality without exhibiting any"), then acted out a 50s-sitcom version in which clean-cut citizens revolt against normalcy by smoking, embracing homosexuality, and eventually killing. The cast fixated on easy pop references, but the sarcasm was thick and zany. Director Angela McMahon crafts a truly professional improv production, with efficient blackouts, precise lighting, timely and clever musical touches, and a perky pace.

"We are so excited to be able to do this show for our loyal fans and the folks who really wanted to see it but were turned away," says Angie McMahon creator and Director of "Bad Review"
