Midnight Lover

If you stumbled into the old ColdTowne Theater on the weekend, there’s a good chance you saw Loverboy or Midnight Society perform.

There’s a reason these house teams ran for five+ and ten+ years respectively. Now these two beloved troupes team up to co-headline the second Saturday every month and bring you the comedy stylings that only they can.
