Chicago has always been full of magic and at one point the magicians of Chicago became famous for their particular style. It's an up-close and personal kind of magic that doesn't have the grandiose spectacle that other acts bring to the table, but is every bit as astonishing. In some ways, it's much more fun since the audience is part of the show. The Magic Cabaret brings that golden age of magic, mystery and mischief back to to Chicago audiences hungry for the unusual. In every show, PT Murphy and David Parr present classic conjuring in the Windy City style, using every day objects to bring their stories of old-time magic to life. With an emphasis on audience participation, and liberal doses of humor, spookiness and surprises, the magic cabaret is actually fun for everyone, old or young. Learn More

January 9 & 11-12, 2014: Honeybuns Featuring Dean Evans
You must be at least 18 years old to attend.
Honeybuns, a one-man show devised by Dean Evans, returns in this revamped edition that will simultaneously delight, disgust, and defy all attempts at description. Evans' outlandish and charismatic creature will give you a wild night of visceral and hilarious physical comedy, peppered generously with audience interaction to create a terrific theatrical experience.
January 10-12, 2014: Running in Corduroy Featuring Brian P. Dailey
With a sophisticated respect to time, space and object, Brian P. Dailey evokes feelings of curiosity and playfulness innate to human life. The beauty is that there is no spectacle—Dailey has mastered a performance where no fanfare is needed. You may find yourself surprised that something so simple can be so profound. In addition to dexterity in object manipulation, it is perhaps his unguarded sincerity that reels us in and holds our appeal. From the artfully comical to the poetically poignant, Dailey brings an authenticity to every performance that is true to the moment and refreshingly candid. A show that is modest in motive and pure in spirit, Running in Corduroy is helplessly unforgettable. "One of the most interesting jugglers in America" -- Duncan Wall, author of The Ordinary Acrobat.
