Daily Rehearsal: Tomorrow Never Knows -- this weekend
2. Magic and history: This show will be just like The Prestige, except without Christian Bale, which means it will be 95 percent as good. House Theatre of Chicago launches The Magic Parlour: An intimate evening of classic magic with Dennis Watkins at The Palmer House. It started last year at the Chopin, but who doesn't love the Palmer House? A crowd of people on New Years apparently did, and thus this new mystical experience was born.
3. This Sunday, the original cast of Shattered Globe's Judgment at Nuremburg will perform a reading. A discussion with follow with Peter Less, who was an interpreter at the original trials. The company also did a one-off reconstruction of the production in October that was recommended by Kelly Kleiman.
5. Do you have casting ideas for the potential Into the Woods movie? Bob Bullen does. Think Catherine Zeta-Jones as the Witch and Taylor Swift as Cinderella. The best: A dream casting of Milky White played by an unspecified member of the Kardashian family.
