WTTW Members have the exclusive opportunity to receive $5 off tickets to First Folio Theatre’s Shakespeare Under the Stars production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Pack a picnic and experience the Shakespearean classic that the Chicago Sun-Times says “speaks directly to the trees and moonlight.” This is the perfect show for families to come laugh at the antics of the mischievous Puck as this fantastical fairy turns the world upside-down for the quartet of lovers, and the crazed Bottom, driving them to wild antics in the forest, all in the beautiful outdoor environment of the historic Mayslake Peabody Estate!
Playing at Mayslake Peabody Estate, 1717 W 31st Street in Oak Brook, this show runs July 9 through August 14. This offer is valid for any Wednesday or Thursday performance.
WTTW Members have the exclusive opportunity to receive 2-for-1 tickets to the World Premiere of CHOPS. Directed by Jeff Award Winner Richard Shavzin and written by Chicago playwright Michael Rychlewski, this quintessentially Chicago play tells the story of three middle-aged jazz freaks, who were the Kings of Rush Street at its peak in the ’50s and ’60s. The only problem is that it’s 1984, and those glory days are gone. In this potent cocktail of jazz, frayed friendships, and testosterone, they still need to prove they have the chops.
Previews July 7 and runs through August 14 at Theater Wit at 1229 W. Belmont Street in Chicago. This offer is valid on general admission tickets.
Inspired by a growing demand for Chicago Dance Crash’s street dance aesthetic, Evil & Good utilizes Chicago Dance Crash’s (CDC) signature blend of concert dance and hip-hop, offering a boiled down alternative to its summer annual movement play: sheer, pulse-raising dance. Throwing CDC’s movement capacity into overdrive, CDC and special guest Culture Shock Chicago choreograph this explosive full-length conceptual piece featuring a hip-hop blend and is inspired by the world’s constant struggle between its angels and demons.
Tickets available July 8-16; performances at Vittum Theatre in Wicker Park, 1012 N. Noble in Chicago.
