Upcoming theatre-y things (yowza!)


I just have to capture this. Because it’s insane. Even for me:

9/25: Yeast Nation @ American Theatre Company
9/26: The Marvelous Wonderettes @ Northlight Theatre
9/27: Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom @ Court Theatre
9/30: Hairspray @ Marriott Theatre
10/9: Kathy Griffin @ Chicago Theatre
10/10: Studs Terkel’s Not Working @ The Second City
10/12: Calls to Blood @ The New Colony
10/17: The House on Mango Street @ Steppenwolf
10/17: Lettice & Lovage @ Redtwist
10/18: Heroes @ Remy Bumppo

So, I’m going from primordial ooze (Yeast Nation) to a brief “shoo-bop” stay in the 1960s (Marvi Wonders and Hairspray) to trash talking celebrity gossip (Ms. Griffin) to sketch comedy at its finest (Studs Terkel’s Not Working) to a dark, comedic domestic drama (Calls to Blood).

AND! Just added: Later in October, it’s off to a “veddy” English comedy (Lettice and Lovage). Then, it’s a back-to-backer, with a a matinee of The House on Mango Street directly followed by some Stoppard (Heroes) in the evening.

Just, Just Added! After the Marvi Wonders, it’s to the South Side on Sunday for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom!

Wish me luck, chickens! I will report back!

  1. I’d say that you can never have too much theatre, but no one knows that’s untrue more than me…well, maybe Jamie! :)

    I’m seeing Kathy on the 8th and I am soooo excited!

    I can’t wait to read all of your reviews.

    1. Beth: I bet you saw “Lettice and Lovage,” too! :)

      A friend just sent me this youtube clip of Maggie Smith in the show — I can’t wait!

  2. Great list! If you feel like seeing any ballet, Joffrey is doing Othello in october and it’s gonna be awesome. Let me know – I can hook you up!
