According to the famed improv comedy group, "In the blockbuster of human life, we all know the outcome — no spoiler alert needed. In spite of this inevitable ending, we continue to live our lives, find joy and understand the world around us. Sometimes our path leads us to save the world and sometimes our path is to simply remind our husband where they left their keys — it's what you make of it and how you deal with it that matters. From cold feet on your wedding day to the comfort of viewing the comic misadventures of others on Reality TV, Spoiler Alert: Everybody Dies reminds us that in the end, we are all in this together." The sketches that make up the show, as is the Second City tradition, were created in earlier improv sets. Spoiler Alert also includes audience-fueled improv sequences.
Directed by Matt Hovde (2009 Joseph Jefferson Award winner for Best Director and Best Revue), the cast of Spoiler Alert: Everybody Dies includes Allison Bills, Shelly Gossman, Timothy Edward Mason, Sam Richardson, Tim Robinson and Emily Wilson. Julie Nichols is musical director and Craig Taylor is stage manager. The creative team includes stylist Claire Tuft and set designer Amy Jackson.
