Taking her first tour on Friday night of the completed Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, known as U.C.B.East for short, in the East Village, Amy Poehler examined its renovated 124-seat performance space, its twin lobbies on Third Street and Avenue A and its momentarily immaculate bathrooms, “so clean you could improvise off them,” she said.
But being a comedian Ms. Poehler, the “Parks and Recreation” star and a principal member of the Upright Citizens Brigade troupe, eventually made her way to the bar. As she drank canned wine through a straw, Ms. Poehler was reminiscing with Alex Sidtis, troupe’s managing director, about the coming of age of their comedy-training institution.
Finally! Sad this didn’t get to happen on my watch but very excited for everyone in NYC.
Stupid storm kept Ian and Besser from us, but despite that, opening night was AWESOME!!!!
