'Revue' a comic collaboration

Join the fun as members of the Laughtrack Theater Company and Cherry Blossom Cabaret are collaborating on the variety show “;The Bethel St. Bailout Revue,”; featuring sketch comedy, song and dance, and mash-ups between the two groups.

They're promising a raucous send-up of the current global recession (as well as other current events) by making tongue-in-cheek comparisons to the Great Depression of 1929. Local, national and international issues will also be in the cross hairs of the show's producers with no person in the news safe!

Canned-goods donations (minimum three per person) will also be accepted to support H-5 Charities.

» Where: Laughtrack Theater, 1123 Bethel St.
» When: 8 and 10 p.m. today and Aug. 28
» Cost: $15, $12 with canned-good donation (also BYOB for those 21 and over)
» Info: 384-3362 or
