The legendary Chicago improvisational-theater company Second City is set to open a location in New York, its first, according to Crain’s Chicago Business . The new location, in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, is to consist of an 11,900-square-foot space comprising a mainstage theater, seven classrooms, and a restaurant and bar, Crain's reported. The comedy institution, founded in the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago in 1959, expanded decades ago to Toronto.
