Rob Schneider, Jon Lovitz, and Tim Meadows: Veterans of SNL
- Rob Schneider: From 1988–1994, years before he introduced the world to The Hot Chick and Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, the mischievous Schneider made his mark on SNL with recurring characters such as Richard “The Richmeister” Laymer and The Sensitive Naked Man. He can now be seen returning to his standup roots between bi-monthly Adam Sandler films.
- Jon Lovitz: The veteran comedian, actor, and occasional Broadway singer dominated the second half of SNL’s ’80s era with characters such as Tommy “Yeah! That’s the ticket!” Flannigan, Master Thespian, and the immortal Hanukkah Harry. Having honed his standup act in 2003, he now runs The Jon Lovitz Comedy Club & Podcast Theatre.
- Tim Meadows: A fixture of SNL with a remarkable tenure of ten seasons (1991–2000), the Chicago-bred standup and improviser is best known to late-night viewers as Leon Phelps, the lascivious, lisping “Ladies Man.” In the years since, he’s shown up in comedies such asThe Benchwarmers, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, and Grown Ups between drop-in improv appearances and standup sets across the country.
Akron Civic Theatre
The medieval carvings, European antiques, and Italian alabaster sculptures at the Akron Civic Theatre absorb the ascending harmonies of symphony concerts and heavy rock ‘n’ roll alike. Built in 1929 to resemble a Moorish castle, the venue has maintained much of its historic charm, including the exceedingly rare atmospheric ceiling, in which stars twinkle and clouds float by as mesmerizingly as the last few corn flakes atop a bowl of milk.
E.J. Thomas Hall
Since 1973, The University of Akron's E.J. Thomas Hall has been the center of Akron's performing arts scene. The three-level facility, which occupies three acres of The University of Akron campus, boasts a massive, 44-ton movable ceiling that can shift to enclose the first or second levels. The position of the ceiling has a dramatic effect on the hall's volume and acoustics, so it is controlled by a computer precisely managing 27 counterweights. The hall's ability to transform from an intimate one-level performance space to a vast three-level concert hall allows it to host performances of a variety of sizes and styles by university students and faculty as well as the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Tuesday Musical Association, the Children’s Concert Society, and the Akron Youth Symphony.
