UNION, NJ - “Pop-up” theater -- entertainment in unexpected places – has come to Union’s Unity Bank in the downtown business district.
On February 6 and 7, join The Theater Project when Unity Bank’s Union branch temporarily becomes a Cabaret with live preshow music and non-alcoholic refreshments for sale (courtesy of Union Rotary), Saturday at 8 PMand Sunday at 2 PM. Unity Bank is located at 952 Stuyvesant Avenue in downtown Union.
In LOSING IT … AND TAKING IT BACK! veteran improv comedy performer Deb Maclean takes a humorous look at a woman’s life as she moves from middle age to whatever comes next. She realizes that as you get older, you start to lose “IT” – people, things, your memory, your figure, night vision and the fun of flirting. Slipping in and out of hilariously offbeat characters, she takes audiences on a wild ride as she figures out how to regain what she’s lost, showing us it's never too late to be young again.
LOSING IT …is part of a series of pop-up Theater Project performances designed to draw foot traffic to the business district, supported by Union’s Downtown Improvement District, a Union County HEART grant, and the hospitality of Unity Bank. In December, both performances of IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE: THE RADIO PLAY were sold out, so patrons are advised to buy in advance ($20 regular admission, $10 for students).
Deb Maclean recently appeared at The Theater Project in Moonlight and Magnolias. She began her improv comedy career in Los Angeles and New York where she performed with the much celebrated comedy group Shock of the Funny. She is the founder and director of Lunatic Fringe, New Jersey’s top improv comedy group. LOSING IT… is directed by Paul Murphy.
