The Illusionists

Hundreds of theatre productions are playing in Chicago for extended runs (hello Hamilton!) and open runs (from Blue Man Group to the many great nightly shows at The Second City), however, some only offer performances for a few days or a few weeks. Here are four highlights of what to see on stage now in Chicago before it's too late!

Front Bar

Imagine the perfect night in Chicago: a tasty meal, great drinks, wonderful conversation and a captivating show to top it off. Now imagine doing all of that in one place. Sounds too good to be true, right? Not in this city. Because Chicago is a world-class theater city and a world-class restaurant destination, we naturally have a few amazing places where you can do all of the above under one roof.

GoodPeople 

Steppenwolf Theatre brings Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire's new play Good People to Chicago, and the buzz is pretty strong. I'm seeing it next week when it opens to the press. But if you're interested in catching the show, buy your tickets now. Good People is purported to be powerful, gritty stuff -- exactly the kind of theatre Chicago excels at.
