September Early Evening Show will be Live and Livestreamed at Johnson Hall

The Early Evening Show, Mike Miclon’s spoof of a Late-Night talk-Show has been presented at Johnson Hall with no audience since March. On September 5th the show will be broadcast from the third-floor historic theater and will have 50 seats available for a live audience! Social distancing and masks on entry and exit will be required.

The evening will be filled with hilarious comedy, incredible music, and wild improvisations. Featuring physical comedian, Jason Tardy, dynamic folk-duo, Oren Robinson & April Reed-Cox (AKA The Early Evening Show Orchestra), Cirque du Soleil performer, Steve Ragatz, mad jugglers, Shane & Collin Miclon, Fritz Grobe of Diet Coke and Mentos fame, and your host-funny man Mike Miclon.

Audience members will be able to watch the show from the comfort and safety of their own homes but will still be able to interact with the show through Facebook & text throughout the evening.

The Early Evening Show, created in Buckfield Maine’s Oddfellow Theater in 1998, is the longest-running live variety show in Maine and for the first time in its history will actually be on the air! The Bangor Daily News called the show “a seamless, hilarious production” and CBS Sunday Morning called it “must-see reality”. The show comes complete with a band, guest interviews, improv commercials, and big finales and a guest spot from the Buckfield Department of Tourism!

The performance will be filmed live at Johnson Hall and broadcast over the internet to all who have the ticket link. Each unique link will be sent out through e-mail the day of the show to ticket holders. Each ticket purchased covers your household.

Due to the Corona Virus, Johnson Hall has had to cancel all performances through early May at the theater and all the performers in the show has had their performances canceled around the world. This show is an opportunity for art and theater lovers to not only support Johnson Hall but these artists as well.

Mike Miclon, Johnson Hall’s Executive/Artistic Director and the host of the show said “We are so excited to safely welcome a small audience back into our theater. It has been way too long!

Audience members attending the show will enter the theater on the Mechanic Street entrance. Masks will be required on entry and exit.

Each ticket purchased covers your household.  Each show will be roughly 90 minutes of pure awesomeness!
