Whole World Theatre Alumni Show
This Friday you can see what was the greatest home-grown comedy this city has ever seen, some of the original cast of Whole World Theatre. It included Lance Krall, who starred in his own TV show, “The Lance Krall Show” and Sarah Baker, who is fast becoming a superstar after her numerous TV and movie roles.
While Baker and Krall will not be among the players, one of the standout performers and my personal favorite, Phil Cater, will be. I am hoping that he does his rendition of James Brown because no one does a comedic impression of Brown as hilariously as Cater. He can make you laugh until you cry.
The show will also feature the outstanding original cast regulars: Jenny Andrews, Jim Issa, Wes Kenmore, Annie Humphrey and Chip Powell as master of ceremonies.
The last time I saw a Whole World Theatre show was about 10 years ago, after this original cast had left, and it was nowhere near the quality of this original cast, which was better than any of the numerous Second City show I’ve ever seen.
Having lived in Atlanta and gone to the theater since the 1960s, I have never experienced comedy as great as this cast. You have one chance to see this cast as most of them now live in Los Angeles.
The Whole World Alumni Show runs one night, Friday, Oct. 10 at Whole World Theatre.
