We decided to valet park the car. It was $14 and was the easiest option when traveling with someone in their 70s. Arrive early also because the show was sold out and not everyone arrived on time. Street parking is limited.

There are so many good restaurants in the neighborhood. I was surprised at how busy the neighborhood is and Steppenwolf Theatre wasn't even performing. Dawali is so close to the theater and it was featured on the PBS show Check Please. Dawali offers a classic Mediterranean menu. Enjoy falafel, shawerma, shish kabab and more. I would recommend going there.

Well acted and top notch performers create an entertaining event, however I have a problem with the characterization of the story lines. What was the context of the racism? Why was one daughter so hateful? Why was the mom so subdued? Why did...continued

Extremely thought provoking, excellent music, the storyline itself was a little formulaic, but this is a MUST SEE!

“Provocative, shocking and intriguing.” —Times-Picayune
“[An] inventive, heat-filled, hard-driving score… A cautionary tale that feeds on the evidence.”_ —Chicago Sun-Times_
“Stellar performances… great songs, many of which remain lodged in my skull… top-drawer production values.” —Chicago Tribune
“Incredibly compelling… uncensored, unfiltered and unapologetic.” —WGN-TV


White Noise pulls back the curtain at a major record label where a top-selling producer stirs up an explosive cocktail of shock, spin and a splash of controversy to package talented artists into blockbuster stars.  

Steadily baited by the lure of mainstream fame and power, two diametrically opposed groups - “White Noise”, an irresistible pop band that churns out catchy tunes of hateful, coded rhetoric, and “Bloodbrothas”, the hip-hop-turned-gangsta-rap duo — each willing to compromise anything for success, collide with consequence at the top of the charts.  

Directed and choreographed by by Broadway sensation Sergio Trujillo (The Addams Family, Memphis, Jersey Boys, Next to Normal, Guys and Dolls, All Shook Up) and set in today’s music industry, White Noise is a timely and cautionary tale challenging conventional notions of free speech, media and the power of pop culture.
