Daily Rehearsal: A new Zanies for the Chicago-area
- The Lover is open at Soul Theater and apparently uses a new and interesting tactic to keep people interested: "To help audience members revitalize their own relationships, each performance of The Lover includes a post-show event such as belly-dance lessons or discussions with local marriage counselors," writes Oliver Sava. "It’s a clever way to augment the brief play — and these methods are probably safer than Pinter’s manipulative tactics."
- Steamwerkz: The Musical gets the award for best name and concept for a production this yearm and the content seems alright as well. Zac Thompson calls it "delightfully filthy" and Nina Metz dubs it a "suitably naughty late-night comedic treat."
- Yet another summer of Bronzeville Comedy Shows, the first of which is this Wednesday.
