SlapShot Live!

The Second City presents Slap Shot Live! – a hilarious new theatrical adaptation of the classic movie, following the final-hard fought season of the Charleston Chiefs minor league hockey team.

Ranked #1 on Maxim’s list of “Best Guy Movies of All Time!”

“The best sports film of the past 50 years!” – GQ

Featured on Esquire’s “Movies Every Man Should See!”

The new stage production combines the original films beloved story and iconic characters, with hilarious live-action sequences, as well as nostalgic satire of the 1970′s. Part homage, part satire and part gloves-off, bench-clearing brawl, Slap Shot – Live is a journey back to the golden (and uncensored) era of Old-Time Hockey.

LIMITED ENGAGEMENT! July 2 – July 14, 2013. Tickets $29 – $34, plus tax. Box Office: 416-343-0011.
