Roosevelt Island's Only Comedy Show Taking Summer Hiatus - Will Be Back With More Stand Up And Improv In September Following Completion Of Cultural Center Renovations
The Main Street Theater & Dance Alliance hosted several evenings of Roosevelt Island Stand Up and Family Friendly Improv Comedy shows at the Cultural Center starting last April through June.
Will Neville, one of the producers of Roosevelt Island's Only Comedy Show reports:
After three amazing months of improv and stand up shows, Roosevelt Island's Only Comedy show will be going on a brief summer hiatus for the months of July & August. The hiatus will allow for some much needed renovations in the Roosevelt Island Cultural Center and is also in recognition that we all should be spending more time outside.Looking forward to the return of Roosevelt Island's Only Comedy Show.
We will be spending the summer revamping the shows, building line ups curated specially for Roosevelt Island, and preparing the improv classes that will begin in the fall. We've had an amazing three months so far and we can't wait to come back this fall. We hope to spend this summer building even closer ties to the community and raising awareness about the shows themselves.
Should the renovations end on time, the first show in the fall will be family friendly improv on September 9th at 7pm followed by stand up comedy on September 23rd at 9pm."
