So far as to be impossible to find. Still, that doesn't stop these hi-larious whippersnappers (us) from committing to every moment, sometimes to the point of genuine fear, both onstage and off." - Anonymous Cast Member (The Quitting Contest) "Yes, I agree." - Second Anonymous Cast Member (The Quitting Contest) "I'm afraid as well. Pretty afraid." - Third Anonymous Cast Member (The Quitting Contest)
Cherry Street are veteran improv duo and real-life married couple Laurel Krabacher (Second City TourCo, Revolver, Virgin Daquiri, Cross Pollination, Little Gary, Told) and Lawrence Collerd (MacBeth, Cross Pollination, Little Gary, Your F*d Up Relationship, Told). Over the last two years they've performed and taught together at theaters around the country, and for four years before that they paid their fucking dues. Their show has been called "exceptional" and "poignant" by the Chicago Reader. Lawrence's father remains unconvinced that it is made up. It is.
