I was saving myself to see Sean Graneys adaptation of 12 Nights (not easy - is there a secret center of power ordering 20 productions of the same play in Chicago each season). I was right, it was a great fun!

About the Ticket Supplier: The Hypocrites

Their mission, which is ever-evolving to adapt to the growth of their organization, is to make a Theater of Honesty.
