The Sideshow Moves to PHIT

sideshowMike Marbach’s two and a half year old improv and variety comedy showcase The Sideshow is moving from The Arts Parlor on Broad Street to the new permanent Phit location at the Adrienne Theater.

Writes Mike Marbach on his website, “Two of the reasons I started Sideshow are now no longer relevant. The first is Beirdo has scattered to the ends of the Earth with occasional (and awesome) shows. The other is that starting later in January 2014 The Philly Improv Theater will have a permanent home at the Adrienne Theater with shows 52 weeks a year! So the need for The Sideshow to fill in the gaps of PHIT weeks will no longer be there and as [Philly Improv Theater’s] Education Director I didn’t want to be running a “competing” effort. So, after some talks- The Sideshow is moving to PHIT starting January 23rd!” (You can read the full article at MikeMarbach.com).

Meanwhile, The Sideshow’s space and time will be filled at the Arts Parlor with a new showcase called The Brewery (visit the facebook event page here).

The Brewery will be run by a local improv group called Bill Parks, which is comprised of current PHIT students (Erin Coffey, Erica Paradisi, Adam Perkins, Sofya Piro, Stacy Sanseverino, Rajiv Sharma, Adam Steiger, Sean Sullivan, Joe Tuzzi) and directed by Alex J. Gross.

Members of Bill Parks told Marbach, “Our view of the show is that it will emulate a brewery in more than name alone. Experiment, collaborate and enjoy the results. In general, the show will be similar to the Sideshow. Established comedic talents and budding new acts will take to the stage, bringing a consistently great show to the Arts Parlor twice a month.”

The first Brewery will be on Friday, January 11th at 8pm.
