NOVI - The Second City Theatricals will partner with Rock The Vote on Friday, Oct. 24 at the 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. performances of DeFace The Nation in an effort to get people out to the polls. Deface The Nation is The Second City's all-political revue with customized comedy for this election year. Featuring scenes and songs that poke fun at both political parties and a variety of pundits, Second City proves that there's no shortage of comedy coming out of Washington, DC in this or any year. From Bush to Clinton to Obama, to that other Clinton, DeFace The Nation is a hilarious romp through the beltway and beyond. The comedy concludes its run Nov. 23.
Founded nearly 20 years ago in the wave of attacks on freedom of speech and artistic expression, Rock The Vote's mission is to engage and build the political power of young people in an effort to achieve progressive change in the country. The organization gives young Americans the tools to identify, learn about and take action on the issues that affect their lives, all the while leveraging their power in the political process. Rock The Vote has clearly established itself as the premier organization representing the intersection of young people, politics and popular culture.
Directed by Andy Miara, the cast of DeFace The Nation includes Rob Belushi, Nancy Hayden, Quintin Hicks, Kevin McGeehan, Marke Sobolewski, and Natalie Sullivan. Jason Grimm is the musical director, and Jennifer Ruffner is the stage manager.
The Second City is located at 42705 Grand River Ave. in Novi.
