Thursday, February 2 I PETER PAN’S SHADOW PART ONE: NEVERLAND Dream Theatre Company presents the first play of its season-long trilogy: PETER PAN’S SHADOW PART ONE: NEVERLAND, the world premier of a new show by Jeremy Menekseoglu. Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and Peter’s younger sister set out on a harrowing adventure that will result in the birth of Neverland, the accidental creation of Peter’s shadow, and the appearance of a fearsome new enemy on the horizon: Captain James Hook. “PETER, TAKE ME HOME!” says the shadow. Telling a Peter Pan story very different from those we have known, Dream Theatre probes the darker corners of Neverland and the selfish boy who forced it into being. This is the new adventure of Peter Pan and the younger sister who believed him to be dead for her entire life; after meeting him and Tinker Bell, it might have been better if that had been the case. This dark and engaging trilogy is a fairytale as only Dream Theatre could imagine it. Read the rest of this entry »

Chicago’s leading avant-garde director, Max Truax, helms Henrik Ibsen’s obscure epic “Brand.” Old Testament rage battles modern complacence when a furious priest attempts to reform a small town steeped in corruption. When the town gives Brand the pulpit he desires, his ideals prove his undoing. Time Out Chicago hails Truax as “one of the most visually visionary directors in Chicago’s storefront scene”.
