Hazan, a young "startup-ist", comes to New York to pitch his various business ideas. He meets Maya, a half-American trying to make it as a stage actress. We follow their respective pursuits in love and work in a city they think they know and a culture they think they understand.

NEXT STOP stars Noga Milstein and Ben Perry who transition seamlessly between the roles of Maya and Hazan as well as a slew of other New Yorkers. 

Directed by acclaimed actress Mili Avital, NEXT STOP features a book by Noga Milstein and Avital, music by Yoni Bloch, lyrics by Barak Feldman, with additional music by Omri Angheland Ann Streichman.

For two performances only, the famed comedy troupe team takes aim at the faces, places and events of the past year.

"The Funniest Show in Town!" -- New York Post
"You have to go a long way to find a funnier comedy group!" -- The New York Times

Chicago City Limits has been hailed as "Hilarious!" by the Daily News, "The Funniest Show in Town!" by the New York Post, and "Uproarious and Amazing!" by the Washington Post. The New York Times raves, "You have to go a long way to find a funnier comedy group!". Chicago City Limits Without A Net is the group's 32nd comedy revue since establishing itself in NYC in 1980. The show combines hard-hitting social and political satire with side-splitting improvisations, based on audience suggestions.

Directed by Joe de Gise III and Paul Zuckerman.
