Renowned for their highly physical comedy and lightning-quick character changes, The Pajama Men (who do in fact perform in their PJs) are bringing their latest show -- the critically acclaimed Just the Two of Each of Us -- to Chicago. After sold-out runs everywhere from London to Australia, this award-winning comedy duo brings a slew of new characters to UP Comedy Club in a show filled with seemingly unrelated storylines that miraculously collide by its conclusion. Featuring characters like Beulah (who will go so far as to eat a spider if it means getting to hang with the cool kids), Nadine (who has recently lost an arm to a beast and would very much like it back) and a procrastinating King (who has "only" 700 years to get his act together and save the world), Just the Two of Each of Us is a crazy night of comedy that you won't soon forget.

Interesting play (completely crazed and whacked, but in a fascinating way.......) I'd recommend this production to everyone, as the play is VERY rarely done and is a vital, if small, piece of Tennessee Williams' theatrical history. The performers are mostly quite good; the actress playing Clare could definitely show more genuine vulnerability and simplicity in the poignant speech when she is lying on the trunk, as this is one of the only times she is even remotely open or vulnerable. This passage should be as visceral and essential as a terrified child.
The actors, however, were fine in showing levels of play-within-play (sane, nuts, sane in the play within the play, nuts/screwing up in the play within the play.........) and I admire them both for their achievement.
The actor playing Felice also has a marvelous and flexible voice.

This was a brilliant production that Tennessee Williams would be proud of! This play was intelligent and thought-provoking. A sophisticated theater audience would love this. There was never let down moment in the entire 70 minutes.

“Williams reportedly described the play as a cri de coeur, and that’s what it feels like: raw, poetic, and engrossing.” —Chicago Reader (recommended)
