Following on its successful creation with the Lyric Opera of last year's The Second City Guide to the Opera, the Second City is working with Hubbard Street on another collaborative show: The Second City Guide to Dance will premiere October 13–16 at the Harris Theater as a full-evening performance that will serve as the program for Hubbard Street's fall series.


The news, announced by Hubbard Street head Glenn Edgerton and Second City honcho Kelly Leonard in a brief press event at the Second City this afternoon, isn't a huge surprise; creatives from the two organizations have been working together toward the project for some time.


Second City writers Kate James, Tim Mason and Carisa Barreca and director Billy Bungeroth will work with Hubbard Street dancers to devise the production. It's too early to know what final shape the cast might take (the bulk of the creative work will take place in August and September), but it will include dancers from Hubbard Street's main and second companies alongside Second City performers.
