No food on site, just a few beer selections and warm Rex Goliath Cabernet and Yellow Tail Pinot Grigio to take into the theatre ($5) which a shame because there is a wine store across the street at Buena that has a good selection. I expect better than grocery store wine. Bleh. Lots of restaurants along Broadway south of the theatre which works great if taking the 36 CTA Broadway bus.The Cryptogram dining • Nov 10 2014 star this tip starred

A dark and stormy night finds Betty and Bobby packing up a cabin in Neil Labute’s In a Forest, Dark and Deep. . Joe Jahraus’ direction in this newly acquired bigger addition – the old National Pastime Theatre, now Profiles’ Main Stage – doesn’t miss a beat, even with the additional breadth. He treats the characters as old friends, finding their way in extraordinary circumstances. Natasha Lowe and Darrell W. Cox - sister and brother - backslide into the same archetypes most siblings do - at once insulting each other but in the next moment sharing a nostalgic chuckle. Labute’s recognizable dialogue - along with Thad Hallstein’s set, Jeffrey Levin’s sound and John Kohn’s lighting– add just the right amount of spell. When the play ends you realize you’ve been taken on a ride and back again. Trust me you’ll be talking about these characters for weeks to come. Definitely go see it.

“LaBute writes about the elusiveness of truth and the deceptiveness of appearances, taking the audience on a theatrical rollercoaster ride!” — The Guardian
