The Upright Citizens Brigade Meets the Beatles


The Upright Citizens Brigade TheatreThe Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre

The Upright Citizens Brigade opened their first theatre in New York in 1999. Since then the company has launched the careers of many of comedy's most beloved and acclaimed writers and performers. The Library for the Performing Arts welcomes UCBT performers Frank Hejl, Doug Moe, Ben Rameaka, and Natasha Rothwell to the stage for an evening of conversation and, of course, comedy. After a discussion of UBC's history and methodology, the performers will show one of UCB's signature improv forms, SHUFFLE, in action, but with a special twist inspired by the Library's current exhibition Ladies and Gentlemen...The Beatles!. Instead of using songs from audience members' personal music collections as inspiration for the improv set, as legendary UCB team Mother did in The Soundtrack shows, tonight's performers will respond to a random selection of Beatles songs.  
The LPA is proud to offer free admission to programs on a first come, first served basis.
