Breasts are as much a comedy staple as penis jokes. But The Second City’s Life in Boobs isn’t about perpetuating male fantasies. Conceived by Jennifer Goodman and directed by Casey Christensen, who also wrote the book and lyrics for the musical comedy, it mixes monologues and scenes that look at the perky highs and sagging lows of our lady lumps, and how they inform us physically and emotionally, from adolescence to old age. With music by Rachel Lawrence, cast members Christensen, Goodman, Sherry Cola, Brooke Eyler, Sara Montgomery, Naomi Murden, Leslie Rubino and Kyla Page Williams draw on personal experiences dealing with training bras, motherhood and breast cancer, and sing original songs to the tune of Broadway and pop. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, a reminder to us all to check ourselves regularly and thoroughly; this show offers a much more fun kind of examination.
