Chicago has long been a hotbed for improv and sketch comedy, but you don't have to go to The Second City to find laughs. Some of Chicago's funniest performers can be found in places like Stage 773 with comedy troupe GULP! Productions' show, Improv After Hours. GULP!'s current show features a new theme each week. The troupe's original core team, which includes Thomas Einstein, Amber Linde, Marie Maloney and Jacob Welch, is joined by special guests with a variety of comedic chops, from musical improv to sketch comedy, clowning and puppetry.

Based on ancient myths, this tragedy examines how love and unabated passion can destroy lives. Phèdra is cursed by the gods to love her own stepson, Hippolytus. He in turn hides a secret love affair of his own. Emotional, turbulent and sexy, Phèdra is a mythical soap opera for a contemporary audience.
