Let the Chips Fall: Improvised Stand-Up

September 19th at 9:00pm

Stand-up comedy off the cuff! Can Rochester’s best comedians be just as funny if they’re unprepared? Let’s find out! With improvised stand-up, audience members text in topics.

Presented by Hilary Bluestein-Lyons and Chris Thompson.

September 20th at 6:00pm

ZING! The iconic songs she sang. The legendary stories she told. There will never be another Judy Garland. BUT – what would happen if someone took some of those old songs and sang them in a new way? Or revisited some of those old stories while sharing some new ones? Rochester’s own Dawn Sargent (vocalist) and Mark Alan DeWaters (pianist/composer) hope to find out! Together they share their unique interpretations of Judy Garland’s legacy while celebrating her immeasurable influence.
