227: The Lost Episodes, a live comedy show at Second City Hollywood, is giving a makeover to one of the 1980s' beloved sitcoms.

In the entirely improvised stage shows, the cast creates "all-new" episodes featuring neighbors Mary, Rose, Sandra and Pearl, who routinely gather to gossip on a DC apartment stoop. The cast includes improv actors Holly Walker, Inda Craig-Galvan, Robin Thede, and Daniele Gaither. Mary's husband Lester also appears, played by a flat top wig-wearing Thomas Fowler.

The original 227 aired on NBC from 1985 to 1990 and starred Marla Gibbs, Alaina Reed Hall, Helen Martin, Jackee Harry, and Hal Williams.

The Lost Episodes prides itself on putting a modern, irreverent spin on typical '80s humor, and boasts frequent guest stars including Affion Crockett, who co-starred in May as Sandra's break-dancing love interest, and Tatyana Ali, who is scheduled to perform in June.

Below, see the cast in action in a promo for this season's shows:

227: The Lost Episodes runs at Second City Hollywood through June 21. You can follow the production on Facebook HERE and on Twitter HERE to find additional show dates.
