Work on Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre begins at former Two Boots space

The "for rent" signs -- seen below earlier this spring -- have come down at the former Two Boots space on Avenue A...(Two Boots Pizza and the video nook combined into the storefront on Avenue A and Third Street.)



There are now work permits in the window. ("To create new performance theater...")





And, peeking inside, you can see the space is being cleared out.

Why is everybody hating on cargo shorts? You sound like a bunch of goth kids. WTF does it matter? Seriously! This is new york city, not new york high school - try to get some perspective people!

Seriously though, everybody at the UCB Theatre wears cargo shorts. It's not a joke. In the winter they change to cargo pants. What losers.

they shuldn't open a new "performince space" at all. they should just open a store that sells regular shorts and nt frickin cargo shorts! then maybe the people that go to the upright theater could go there and buy some! and put some shoes on!

I don't get what you guys are talking about. I own four pairs of cargo shorts. There's nothing wrong with that.

when majicians do funny magic (not just serious magic) they just put a whole bunch of colorful hankerchefs in their poket and then when they take out one hankerchef then its really just a whole string of colorfl hankercheifs and its pretty funny i bet you could do that with cargo shorts so I would go

I used to go to Assssscat at UCB all the time, (and yes, i do wear cargo shorts every day from may til november) but I don't go anymore because everyone that went there were also wearing cargo shorts. WTF!? I really can't have that, so now I hang out at the Toys R Us in Times Square cus it's open til 11 on fris and sats now and I can steal those big planet shaped sweet tarts that are the size of smaller jawbreakers, but they aren't jawbreakers they are better.

Ew. Cargo shorts and sandals make people look like nurses on an Africa battle field. Like the english patient. I hope an elephant attacks the line there because the tusky elephant thinks it;s nurses.

Chris Get-hard is the worse one of them all. He actually has this thing where he wears cargo shorts underneath another pair of cargo shorts. At first I thought they were longs boxers, but no, they are actually cargo shorts. And that doesn't even make sense because how could you use the pockets of the bottom pair of cargo shorts?

i once read an interview with stephen colbert where he said his first comedy central show exit 51 was started becuz all the members wore cargo shorts on a regular basis, so i wouldn't knock on the cargoes too much. colbert is doing alright and those are his roots. plus at ucb i can put some pbrs in my cargo shorts and not have to go back to the bar during the show. it is practical.

I can't sleep 'cause I'm thinking about those shorts. The cargo shorts, that is.

When u r a point gard, sometimes you have 2 pass the ball with your eye on the basket. But would u throw the ball 2 someone waring cargo shorts?!? I dont think so b/c you know they r not sereous about bball the way you are seresous about bball and they would probbaly drop it and then your team would loose. Whats the difference between being a point gard and being a theater acoter? no DIFFFERENCE!!!!! The world needs more Triggs!!!!

UCB comedians need to trust their talent and stop relying on the practicality of their shorts to make thier comedy happen. Maybe you think i'm biased because i am the largest private investor in Tony n Tina's Wedding. If you think that, meet me at Toni n' Tina's wedding tonight, and we can settle this whole thing there. I'll put a dent in your brain.

Apparently it's required that you wear cargo shorts if you take classes there. And at a show I asked a guy why everyone wore cargo shorts. He said that cargo shorts are the only shorts with pockets big enough to fir cargo shorts.

I missed my third class at UCB Improv and now am probably kicked out. They will SAY its because I flaked out on the classes..but we ALL know the REAl reason why they banned me. Look, I had a choice. Cargo shorts were $12.99 at Old Navy. Some weird tattered dress from the 1920's that smells like regret was on ebay for $12.98. What the fuck would YOU have done?
