Daily Rehearsal: The Neo-Futurists announce 24th season
1. Freud's Last Session has been extended again through July 15, making it unclear when his actual last session will occur (yuck yuck yuck). They really want you to know that famous people have attended, as seen in the special "Celebrity Sightings" portion of the New York website. But in Chicago, that ad campaign will probably suffer: so far, we've got Chicago news anchors Ron Magers and Walter Jacobson who "each had a session." Sorry guys, you're not Barbara Walters or Woody Allen.
2. Los Carralejas: The Story of a Kidnapping will be presented in only 4 performances May 3 through 6 at Luna Central, Teatro Luna's new venue. It's a production by visiting group Colectivo El Pozo. But know before you go that it's in Spanish with English subtitles.
3. Now that it's warm again, The Second City's Neighborhood Tour is back. Hosted by the apparently delightful Margaret Hicks, tours of Old Town start May 22 and continue on Sundays and Tuesdays through October 28.
5. Talk Like Shakespeare Day was yesterday; if you talked like Shakespeare to the right guy, you got a free ride on the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel. I did it. It was fun, if awkward.
