Chicago has always been full of magic and at one point the magicians of Chicago became famous for their particular style. It's an up-close and personal kind of magic that doesn't have the grandiose spectacle that other acts bring to the table, but is every bit as astonishing. In some ways, it's much more fun since the audience is part of the show. The Magic Cabaret brings that golden age of magic, mystery and mischief back to to Chicago audiences hungry for the unusual. In every show, PT Murphy and David Parr present classic conjuring in the Windy City style, using every day objects to bring their stories of old-time magic to life. With an emphasis on audience participation, and liberal doses of humor, spookiness and surprises, the magic cabaret is actually fun for everyone, old or young. Learn More

I saw the original production of "The Goat or Who is Sylvia?" on Broadway in 2002 with Mercedes Ruehl (Bill Pullman was supposed to play the lead, but he was sick, so his understudy went on), and by comparison I'd say that this production by Remmy Bumpo is pretty comparable -- without the airfare or Broadway prices! The intimate space of the Greenhouse Theater is much more conducive to this play than a large house. Be ready to be shocked -- but that's the whole point. I highly recommend seeing this poignant, funny, and willy-inducing Albee play, and this R.B. production certainly does it justice.

I guess Albee is crazy. My wife and I both enjoyed the play. Dialog is fantastic. Remy Bumppo's regulars were very good. Small setting worked great. Be prepared for profanity and, lets call it a frank discussion about alternative sex.

Martin is the envy of men, enjoying a hugely successful career, fulfilling marriage and well-adjusted teen-age son. But just after his 50th birthday, he boils over, confessing a love affair that confounds him and shocks his family. Unwilling to give up, his wife Stevie drags every detail onto the living room floor.
As their world shatters, the family presses on, battling for the Martin they love. From the acclaimed author of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, this 2002 Tony Award-Winning Best Play asks where love places the limits of forgiveness. Albee’s razor wit tears open taboos and brings laughs and levity to this intimate drama.
