For the first time in over 60 years, watch and listen to L. Frank Baum's unforgettable fantasy about Dorothy and her little dog Toto's magical journey over the rainbow to the land of yellow brick roads and the Emerald City as a radio play. American Theater Company's PJ Paparelli directs this unique telling -- with all the exciting scenes and enduring songs -- of one of America's most beloved movies. Families and children will enjoy this story of a girl who wakes up in a strange land filled with witches and wizards, munchkins and flying monkeys, and befriends a lion, a tin man and a scarecrow on her quest to find her way back home. There's no place like it, after all. Learn More

Incredible performances (singing and dancing) by everyone. Put this on your must-see list! Best wishes for a long run. Minor lighting issues last night didn't dim my enthusiasm!
In its first Chicago production since the national tour, Bailiwick Chicago's newly envisioned production of Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida features stunning choreography by the modern dance company Deeply Rooted Dance Theater, a six-piece band, and a cast of 20 talented actors, singers, and dancers. Aida tells the story of a high-ranking Egyptian soldier, engaged to the Pharaoh's daughter and next in line for the throne, who falls in love with the Nubian slave Aida. When he discovers that she is the daughter of the King of Nubia, each is forced to choose between love for country and love for each other. With a driving pop-rock score by Elton John, the story challenges audiences to consider the question: “What would you sacrifice for eternal love?”
