New Group to Present Stand-Up Center Stage With Susan Blackwell, Mario Cantone and More

Janeane Garofalo, Mario Cantone and Judy Gold will join Susan Blackwell for the New Group's upcoming "Dark Nights" event, Stand-Up Center Stage, Feb. 24 at the Acorn Theatre.

Blackwell ([title of show], Now. Here. This.) will moderate the 6 PM discussion that will explore the crossover "between the world of stand-up and so-called 'legit' theatre." The line-up promises Garofalo (Russian Transport), Cantone (Assassins, Laugh Whore) and Gold (The Judy Show – My Life as a Sitcom, 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother).

Reservations are required. There is a $20 suggested donation. E-mail seats@thenewgroup.org.
