|Every Wednesday at noon, CST, Brown Paper Tickets will post upcoming events happening in the Chicago area. Here are hot tickets for events coming up. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.
Tomorrow, September 15 Moby-Dick: The audience is confined onboard with the crew of the Pequod as this new version of “Moby-Dick” focuses on the contagious nature of obsession. Evolving from The Building Stage’s highly physical 2006 adaptation, this production reaches beyond the story of Captain Ahab to capture the shifting currents of the novel itself. Melville’s prose mixes with movement and miniature ships as a trio of percussionists propel Ahab’s obsession with the white whale to its fateful conclusion.
Tomorrow, September 15 The Other Dance Festival 2011, Week Two: Celebrate the 10th anniversary of the modern dance festival with this week’s performances from BONEdanse, Jyl Fehrenkamp, Molly Shanahan/Mad Shak, The Moving Architects, Same Planet Different World Dance Theatre and Janet Schmid.
Saturday, September 17 The City That Drinks: The City That Drinks, written by Neo-Futurists Sean Benjamin and Steve Mosqueda and newcomer Jamie Budzick,is a show all about the history of drinking & writing in Chicago (as well as the non-drinking history).
Monday, September 19 Dumb Angel: Part transcript, part collage and part explosion of the American image of happiness, Dumb Angel explores madness, meaning and the torment of an artist on a quest for auditory joy beginning with the tumultuous recording session for The Beach Boys’ 1965 number-one hit single “Help Me, Rhonda.”
Wednesday, September 21 Locavore Picnic Supper: Picnic supper featuring local food from the Honest Meal Project, Limelight Catering and Green City Market. The dinner celebrates the conclusion of Green City Market’s annual Locavore Challenge.
