3 Fall Chicago Theater Recommendations
The air is (almost) crisp and live shows are back.
Here’s 3 shows we don’t want you to miss this fall:
1. “Kitchen Meeting” written and directed by Cordie Nelson
Friday, Sept 30 and Saturday, Oct 1, 7pm
Green Shirt Studio, 4001 N Ravenswood Ave. Unit 303-B
Tickets – Pay-What-You-Can
A new one-act play from Green Shirt Instructor Cordie Nelson. Staring Halie Ecker, Maria Margaglione, and Green Shirt Artistic Director Jack Schultz.
“Three siblings sit down to have a vote in this darkly humorous examination of family dynamics, addiction, and other mundane facets of adulthood.”
2. “The Most Spectacularly Lamentable Trial of Miz Martha Washington” by James Ijames and directed by Whitney White
Sept. 1-Oct. 9.
Steppenwolf Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted
Tickets – $20+
“The recently widowed ‘Mother of America’ lies alone in her Mount Vernon bed, ravaged by illness and attended to by the enslaved people who will be free the moment she dies. This uproarious form-shifting fever dream takes us deep into the ramifications of one of America’s original sins.”
3. “World’s Greatest Dad(?)” written and performed by Jimmy Carrane
Sunday, Oct 16, 3:30pm
The Jekot Theater, 3905 N Lincoln Ave
Tickets – $15
“After 10 years in therapy, Jimmy Carrane is still unhappy that he is not as famous as some of the people he started out doing improv with. So when his therapist suggests that Jimmy and his wife have a baby to bring more joy into their life, Jimmy sets out to become a first-time dad at age 52, at the same time that his own father is dying. From fertility treatments to a disastrous funeral, Carrane takes us on a funny and poignant roller coaster of life and death and shares his discovery that you don’t have to be the “greatest” to be a good dad.”
We look forward to seeing you at the theater!
