Goodman Theatre presents Another Word For Beauty

In popular culture, the South American country of Columbia has long been associated with images of drug trafficking, beauty pageants and political strife. Its a one-dimensional trope that keeps haunting Columbia, especially with media spectacles like the recent Miss Universe debacle. Academy Award-nominated director Jose Rivera (Motorcycle Diaries)  borrows from real life and manages to cram all of these elements into the multi-faceted musical Another Word For Beauty, playing at Goodman Theatre through February 21.

Chicago Theatre Week | The Second City

Shakespeare called it when he said all the world's a stage. The Bard's sentiment rings doubly true from February 11-21, when the fourth annual Chicago Theatre Week celebrates the art form practiced on more than 200 stages across the city. Produced by the League of Chicago Theatres in partnership with Choose Chicago, the week-long party in the theatrosphere features deeply discounted tickets to 120 different theaters plus free events including sneak previews and a staged reading.
