The cast of NBC's Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock haven't worked since the Writers Guild of America strike began almost two weeks ago, as both shows shut down production while their writers took to the picket lines. However, the actors will be performing some new material in their regular time slots very soon.
As a special treat (and probably to avoid getting too rusty), Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Tracy Morgan, and the rest of the comedies' cast members will be performing their shows on stage in New York City's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Saturday night at 11:30 p.m., the SNL cast will perform live with guest host Michael Cera (Arrested Development, Superbad) and musical guest Yo La Tengo. The 30 Rock performance will be held at 8 p.m. on Monday night.
Advanced tickets for both shows have already sold out. For more information, head over to the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater Web site.
