I ordered tickets online a week before the show, and it was a very easy process. A couple of days before the show I had to call the box office to set up dinner and was very pleased with the help I got.
We chose to eat at one of Second City's partner restaurants, Bistrot Margot. Dinner was delicious and enjoyable, but the big bonus came when we got to the Second City venue. By going this route we also enjoyed the benefit of having one of the best seats in the house--the front row of the raised platform--so the viewing was easy.
The service staff is a large, well-oiled machine! I was a little concerned about getting those upgraded seats because the night we went it was a very full house. No need to worry--they definitely know what they're doing. Pre-show, I saw lots of nachos and fries being delivered. Our server came by and took our drink order. I asked for a glass of water, so apparently there is no minimum to meet. I saw some pretty fancy drinks delivered while we waited for the show to start.
We saw "The Best of Second City" show, which is mostly sketch comedy, thought there were a couple of improv sections. I loved it! The cast was made up of two women and three men, each of them very talented and charming. I was a little worried that, since it's a "Best of" show, it might be dated, but the skits addressed current issues. There were some teenage kids in the audience. I'd rate it PG-13 or a soft R for content. Overly sheltered kids will need things explained.
It was a great show with an intermission and an encore, so it lasted just over two hours.
