- Angel Busque’s Eggroll Invitational: Chicago is a stand-up comedy show where the proceeds will go to benefit the Lupus Foundation of America. Busque died in June from lupus; this performance is on September 20 and will feature comedians like James Fritz, Mike Lebovitz, CJ Sullivan, Sean Flannery and Chad Briggs, and will be hosted by the Puterbaugh Sisterz. Comedian Mike Bobbitt wrote a nice goodbye to Busque, who was his former sister-in-law. It's at the Lincoln Lodge.
- A review of the Annoyance's 25th anniversary show: Jenna Marotta wrote that "...parts of the evening had a funereal feel to me. A video montage featuring a few seconds from almost every Annoyance show—‘Look what’s been accomplished in 25 years; now what?’—reminded me of a slideshow at an end-of-season party for high school athletes."
- Congo Square Theater announced their full season roster, where they'll be exploring identity.
- "‘Pirates’ literally sets sail in Chicago." Never have I ever seen a better or happier headline.
