TONIGHT!! – WordBall | Unmasked – Stories connect us. WordBall is the next generation of storytelling to come to Chicago. It is your story the way you want to tell it. Come to tell a story or just sit back and enjoy the entertainment. Games are a go.
Thursday, October 27 to Sunday, November 13 – Sizzle: A Global Warming Comedy New Suit Theatre Company is proud to present its third show “Sizzle: A Global Warming Comedy” – an adaptation of the documentary film of the same name. It follows Dr. Randy Olson, a scientist turned filmmaker, who is convinced that he can make a movie that will end the global warming debate just by interviewing scientists and placing their ideas side by side. When things don’t go as planned, it’s up to his sensible production assistant, his crazy producer, and his skeptical cameraman to help him maintain his faith in humanity. “Sizzle” is a story that has its roots in the credibility crisis currently enveloping science in America. It is about the hilarious (and not-so-hilarious) ways we behave when unable to bring others to our point of view. It is about communication and miscommunication. Ultimately, it is about moving forward together.
Friday, October 28 – Globalfest: Latin America GlobalFest will celebrate Chicago’s recent designation as a Fair Trade City and will feature Chicago’s Fair Trade connections to Latin America.

Saturday, October 29 to Monday, November 7 – Noel Coward in Two Keys Noel Coward at his very best. He takes his usual incisive examination of seemingly stable marriages to new heights.

The arrival of a Roman lady at their Swiss hotel derails the Conklin social assault. In “A Song at Twilight,” Sir Hugo Latymer, a famous novelist, is seriously ill.
