Dueling Critics: The Cousins Grimm

Bailiwick Repertory is dishing out the Broadway device of a musical about the difficulties of making a musical. The twist? They're turning classic fairy tales upside down by giving them a gay theme. The Dueling Critics, Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman tell us whether putting the grimm into the gay really works in  The Cousins Grimm.

Kelly's Pick:
Earth TTFN 
Greenhouse Theater, Victory Gardens Theater
Through August 9

Jonathan's Pick: 
Poseidon! An Upside Down Musical
Chopin Theatre
Through August 16

Rod Blagojevich Superstar 
Chicago Shakespeare Theater
Through September 6

The Arabian Nights
Lookingglass Theatre
Through August 30
