Parking on a Sunday afternoon was challenging, and after 15 minutes of looking for street parking I ended up in one of the many lots that increase their rates when there's a show...10 dollar flat fee for parking---

The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity: *The acclaimed comedy The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity slams together thrilling spectacle, incredible characters and geopolitical allegory into an invigorating theatrical experience that you can’t find on pay-per-view. Kristoffer Diaz’s play also received the 2011 Obie Award for Best New American Play and the 2008 National Latino Playwriting Award.

“Has the serious crack and pop of a galloping, honest-to-God, all-American satire”– The New York Times

“An adrenaline rush…delightful physicality and freewheeling theatricality!”– Washington Post

It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play: This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. An ensemble of Stage Company associate artists brings to the stage the story of idealistic George Bailey, who has given up on his dreams in order to help others and who now considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve, bringing about the intervention of his guardian angel. It’s A Wonderful Life celebrates community at its best and reminds us that we contribute to each other’s happiness and well being, perhaps daily, in ways we might not ever be conscious of. This is the timeless gift of the story and why it continues to resonate so powerfully with us today.*_

_*"Fresh and inventive way of reconnecting with a classic story of love and redemption."– Chicago Sun-Times

“Wonderful, heartwarming and good for the soul” — San Francisco Chronicle

The Threepenny Opera: A milestone of 20th century musical theater, The Threepenny Opera (Die Dreigroschenoper) rolls on unstoppably into the 21st with absolute relevance in today’s world. In their opera “by and for beggars,” composer Kurt Weill (1900–1950) and playwright Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956) created a trailblazing musical spectacle of fierce social and political critique where the haves clash with the have-nots with its haunting jazz score by Kurt Weill, acid harmonies and biting lyrics. This musical saga of the villainous but irresistible Mack the Knife and his marauding band of thieves is a revolutionary musical theatre inspiring such hits as Cabaret (at The Stage in 2011 for an extended run) and Urinetown, The Musical (at The Stage in 2006 for an extended run). 

“The kind of theater that shakes up a audience.” – Chicago Daily Herald

“An engaging and biting piece of theatre.” – New York Daily News
