Sketch Comedy groups come and go quite frequently. Members flit in and out quite of more established groups just as frequently. Itís a bit like any local music scene. Bands come and go and only a few manage to stick it out for the long haul. Thatís perhaps the biggest accomplishment for local sketch comedy group Broadminded. Consisting of Anne Graff LaDisa, Stacy Babl, Melissa Kingston and Megan McGee, Broadminded¬†has accomplished quite a bit just having survived five years with the same group of performers for half a decade. The fact that the material itself is also sharp, clever, witty, well-executed and consisting enough levels to appeal to just about everyone in ANY room is extra.

Another person might refer to all of the sparkling qualities of a Broadminded show as ďthe icing on the cake.Ē I wonít Itís tacky. And anyway, this being their fifth birthday show, Broadminded is bringing its own cake. And party favors. So okay, theyíre not doing new material for their fifth anniversary, but theyíre celebrating five years with the audiences that have allowed them to be more than merely four women looking for an audience. And who couldnít have a good time at a Broadminded show?

Broadminded Turns FiveóA ďBest OfĒ Comedy Sketch Show ¬†runs February 11th through 26th at the Alchemist Theatre.¬†Call 414-426-4169 for reservations.¬†
