He wishes to thank Mick for inspiration and his family for their support.
Bryan Dunn (Musical Director) is excited to be part of the Second City. Originally from New York, Bryan graduated from The College of William and Mary with a B.S. in kinesiology and then moved to Boston. It was there that he discovered that you could get paid to play music for Improv! In Boston, he taught musical Improv and was music director for the Improv Asylum. He would like to thank his friends and family for their guidance and support.
Kyle Anderson (Stage Manager) loves working with this great group. He came to Second City in the fall of 2006 to work on The Improv All-Star Variety Hour… and 15 Minutes, where he honed his stage management skills on great improvisers, talented musicians, and the occasional burlesque dancer or magician before moving to the Touring Company in July of 2007. Kyle’s a Lighting Designer in Chicago, and you can see his work all over the place, particularly at any Appetite Theatre show. He would like to thank the folks at Second City for the best job he could ask for, Redco for being like a family, and Becky, Andrew and Olivia for being his actual family.
