Steppenwolf Theatre Company presents a variety show like no other in The Midnight City, an amalgamation of storytelling, videography and visual art from notorious local artist and urban provocateur Tony Fitzpatrick and his friend and Chicago Cubs devotee Stan Klein. Drawing from real-life conversations, the imposing Irishman and his slighter, shyer Jewish friend explore hard truths, personal anecdotes and current events as they orbit around major life events including Fitzpatrick's pending move to New Orleans to draw birds and Klein's job working for his favorite baseball team. Peppered with original works by video artist Kristin Reeves, The Midnight City is an utterly singular theatrical experience built on a most unlikely friendship. Learn More

This is an incredible show no one should miss. Clever, funny, poignant, did I mention clever? The acting was superb by all members and the story was both entertaining and witty. The right balance of camp and drama. I highly recommend this production.
Written by Emily Schwartz
Directed by Jimmy McDermott
Chased across the sea by destiny and Marconi’s wireless telegraph, this factual (and fanciful) turn of the century tragedy explores the bizarre story of this homicidal homeopath by having three different actors (Scott Cupper, Matt Holzfeind, & Stuart Ritter) portray the part of our dear, diabolical Doctor.
The Strange Tree Group returns to its grand guignol roots with this marvelously macabre tale about love, death, daring escapes and a bathtub full of body parts.
