50% Off Tickets to Rose Valley Theatre's Sunday Evening
Rose Valley Theatre Group presents the English-language world premiere of Zachary Karabashliev’s award-winning play, Sunday Evening (2009 Best New Bulgarian Play). Two families, lost in deep conflict, misunderstandings, and personal betrayal. Rose and Nick are an immigrant couple trapped between the demons of their past and betrayal of the present. Their turmoil is witnessed by Stella, an actress with a vibrant past but bereaved of any recent success, and Stella’s daughter Jenny, who must resort to manipulation in order to receive love, understanding, and affection that are long overdue. Directed by Rose Valley Artistic Director Zlatomir Moldovanski and featuring an all-Chicago cast, Sunday Evening intertwines the illusion of the American Dream with the reality of everyday existence.

2-for-1 Tickets to Kimberly Bartosik/daela
Kimberly Bartosik, former dancer with Merce Cunningham Dance Company, and her company Kimberly Bartosik/daela make their Chicago debut January 30-February 1, presented by the Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago. Bartosik’s collaborative work I hunger for you is a reflection on faith and its power to transform the body. Suspended in a stark and mesmerizing world, the dance creates a space where internalized forces of faith pulse through dancers’ bodies, which restlessly, tenderly and violently confront one another. Bartosik, who choreographed this work in close collaboration with her performers, draws on her personal experience with Charismatic spirituality and delves into the heart of losing one’s self in ecstasy, ritual, and desire.
WTTW members may purchase two tickets for the price of one, subject to availability.
