A former ensemble member who guided the troupe through the pandemic after Jon Carr’s departure, he’ll move from interim to permanent leader.
With a new leader and new owners, the Chicago comedy staple has expanded its digital reach while reorienting for the future and readying a live return.
Carr will leave Atlanta’s Dad’s Garage for a move to Chicago to lead all three of Second City’s locations.
An art form and industry built on ‘Yes, and…’ faces a world of ‘no,’ ‘maybe,’ and ‘who knows.’
Carr previously served as the Atlanta company’s interim artistic director and marketing director.
