Travel back to a time of big hair, shoulder pads and leg warmers with Hey! Dancin'! Hey! Musical!, the '80s musical based on Factory Theater's hit comedy, which Time Out Chicago named one of the best plays in the city. Set in Chicago in 1986, this hilarious musical is packed with original songs that evoke everything from the power ballads of Heart to the feel-good synth-pop of The Pointer Sisters and Glenn Frey. The story follows teenagers Halle and Trisha as they finagle their way into the final taping of the hippest cable-access dance show in the Chicagoland area in the hopes of finding true love.

Sorry to say, my friend and I left at intermission because the story was just too weird. We are avid theatergoers so we've pretty much seen it all, but this one was baffling. The reason I gave it two stars is because the performers did their best with what they had and the theater, in spite of being a storefront, is comfortable. I felt bad that the audience was so small. In fact the cast outnumbered the audience. Maybe no one came because it was Father's Day. Good luck to the hard-working cast in the coming weeks.
Up to their elbows in carcasses and hard labor, workers Codd, Roach, Maggot, and Brandon strive to navigate their flawed relationships while their boss gropes them, pits them against each other, and manipulates a black supervisor trying to work his way up. The divides between union and scab, black and white, male and female, and past and present begin to melt, as the Sausage Man turns his grinder in Slaughter City.
This play has mature subject matter and is not recommended those age 15 or younger.
