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
<p>"In a perfect society you could fall and there would always be someone there to lift you up and dust you off and not leave you. In perfect society, there would be lots of laughter, lots of joy to
celebrate. And in that perfect society, everyone would join in the celebration." --The Home Project </p> <p>For seven years, About Face has created its most powerful, innovative, and celebrated work in collaboration with Chicago's extraordinary community of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trangender) young people. The audience jumps to its feet in joyful recognition each season at the curtain call of the Youth Theatre production.
About Face presents the world premiere of their most powerful Youth Theatre production yet: The Home Project. Based on interviews with hundreds of gay youths about their experiences with home and homelessness, The Home Project is filled with astonishing, disturbing and ultimately triumphant stories of young people who struggle to create a perfect society while battling complacency, violence and apathy. It is the most thrilling, exciting, and important new play to emerge from the talented adult artists and young people of the nationally celebrated About Face Youth Theatre.</p>
