Sketch Comedy on a Sunday
Looking for variety? Check out Providence's Empire Revue.
Music, comedy, magic: all on a Sunday night?
The Empire Revue in Providence has been supplying all that and more for seven years. Local musician and storyteller Keith Muslow picks guest acts each month to accompany the comedy sketches of the Sparkling Beatniks.
“Munslow developed the Revue in an effort to bring a collaborative and consistently high quality variety show into the AS220 Performance Space….Performers and artists from all over the state come to the Revue stage to showcase their talents, making the show one of the top spots to get a feel for what's going on in the Rhode Island performance scene. And, at $8, it is one of the best deals in town,” Empire Revue stage manager Nicky Mariani writes.
It’s held the first Sunday of each month and the next show is April 7 at 8 p.m. Here’s a sample of what you might see:
