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 was a great show. XIII Pocket Theater Co. does a great job of romanticizing this true story. The video clips are a great addition - making the story come alive. Both actors were great. Paige Smith was exceptional as Bernd - finding witty ways to make the audience laugh throughout the show.
XIII Pocket presents Adore, written and directed by Stephen Louis Grush – playing as part of Steppenwolf’s Garage Rep.
Armin is a cannibal. It’s a secret he’s kept ever since he was a child, the desire to find another person that would never leave him. He never thought it would be possible, until Bernd stepped into his life. A willing victim was the only missing piece and now he has it.
Based off the actual shocking events that made headlines, this groundbreaking film/theatrical crossover challenges our simpler concepts and shows us love as an all consuming act. Literally. By using both the inventions of the stage and the intimacies of the lens, Adore follows the desires, fears and obsessions of two men willing to give themselves completely to their hidden passions however unthinkable they may seem to the rest of the world.
