After the recent critically acclaimed, sold out run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, Peter Michael Marino’s semi-improvised, one-man comedy “Show Up” makes its Long Lake debut at the Adirondack Hotel for two performances on December 30th at 6:00 p.m.
In “Show Up,” award-winning solo show performer, producer and director Peter Michael Marino (“Desperately Seeking the Exit,” “Late with Lance!”) uses his decades of comedy and solo performance expertise to turn the often vilified clichés of the genre on their clichéd heads. Marino exploits an arsenal of Post-it® Notes to compile and transform the challenging and enlightening real-life audience experiences into a single vibrant life-story that is unique each time. Chance elements are increased as audience members are engaged to design the set and sound. “Show Up” provides a wild, unpredictable ride for the audience as Marino navigates this real-life high wire…and there’s a party!
An array of Adirondack Hotel appetizers will be served starting at 6:00 p.m. with the performance beginning shortly after 6:15p.m. Cash bar available throughout the 75-minute show, concluding with a complimentary champagne toast.
Tickets are $25 per person and include show and appetizers. Reservations are required by phoning or emailing the Adirondack Hotel at 518-624-4700 or firstname.lastname@example.org
