George Bernard Shaw took the popular legend of Don Juan and turned it on its head in this freewheeling, comedic adaptation. Ann Whitefield is determined to marry confirmed bachelor Jack Tanner -- and she'll chase him from London to Spain to hell and back. Performed as a staged reading by ShawChicago Theater Company, Man and Superman is more than 100 years old, but it remains an entertaining, thought-provoking piece. Shaw wrote the play almost on a dare, after being told by friends and critics that he would never be a great playwright until he tackled this popular story. So he did, and the resulting work became a masterpiece. Learn More
Parking in this neighborhood is a bit tricky - depending on length of performance street parking is available but advocate taking the L if possible. Parked at the Newberry Plaza garage around the corner and it worked out fine as there were 3 of us and the Ruth Page Center has validated parking there.info • Nov 05 2013 star this tip starred

I highly recommend this dramatic reading. I went with my adult daughter and my grand-daughter and we thoroughly enjoyed the performance.
It was amazing how the performers held the interest of a 9-year old - now that's saying a lot! She followed the story line and we had a lively discussion on the way home about each of the characters. It was a wonderful experience. I've ordered the movie "My Fair Lady" on Amazon so that Chloe can experience the musical version of the story.
