Ready for live entertainment again?

Isn't it hard to remember the last time you attended a public event with a crowd of people? Well, I can break it down for you, 5 whole months! As the weirdest year ever continues, some things are slowly starting to return to some sort of normalcy.

The Nite Show with Danny Cashman is ready to return to its home base of The Gracie Theatre on the campus of Husson University, and is planning to do so with a live audience. The show’s first taping since March at the theater will be on Wednesday, September 16. The audience size will be limited to 50 persons with face masks required.

Since April, The Nite Show has been airing what it calls “scaled-back editions,” mostly from Danny's basement. Guests have joined the show through Zoom, or pre-recorded at home performances. He has had a pretty impressive list of guests too! Maine CDC Director Dr. Nirav Shah, Andrea Barber from “Fuller House,” actor Stephen Tobolowski from “The Goldbergs” and “One Day At a Time,” 90's pop icon Lisa Loeb, Mark Summer of "Double Dare" fame, and Caitlin Burchill and Taylor Kinzler, who are both alums of WABI-TV 5.

Tickets for The Nite Show’s live tapings are required and available for free at

The Nite Show with Danny Cashman is broadcast statewide on Saturday nights. The show is seen Saturday nights in Bangor at 11:30 on WABI-TV5, Saturday nights in Portland at 10:30 on WPFO, FOX 23, and 1 a.m. on WGME CBS 13, and in Presque Isle on Saturday nights at midnight on WAGM FOX 8.
