“The Susan B. Anthony Makeover was poorly conceived.”
A light-hearted jab at Rochester society’s obsession with the city’s past or passing fame.

One familiar with Second City, the Chicago- and Toronto- based troupe, by their reputation for improv theatre might not expect a cultural revue that touches on the heart of Rochester culture. But anyone who sees “I’ll Be Geneseeing You” at Geva Theatre should expect nothing less. A kind of variety show, this is a frivolous comedic tour of all the old stomping ground Rochesterians hold dear, complete with a musical number reflecting on our drunken devotion to garbage plates as well as another about our penchant for festivals in the summer and charity balls in the winter. And, true to Second City standards, the show includes audience prompts and participation to guide them through some more loosely scripted improvised scenes.

“I’ll Be Geneseeing You” plays through February 6th. More details can be found at http://www.gevatheatre.org/plays/secondcity.php.

Spotify Wrapped has shifted the way we talk music

Spotify Wrapped may be the only thing that keeps me going, just to see if I will ever break free from the chokehold sad indie girls seem to have on me.

Please don’t look at me while I’m studying

I almost felt like a real college student for a second, instead of the precarious pyramid of nocturnal raccoons (in sunglasses and a trench coat, of course) that I actually am.

The Kingdom of Sweets comes to Rochester

A classic holiday traditiion for many families, this showing of "The Nutcracker" was a collaborative effort between various organizations in the community.
