My Picks for Chicago Theater Week
I already bought tickets to “Anna Karenina,” and hope to at least see one other show. Check out my top three picks below.
1. Anna Karenina at the Auditorium Theater (Loop)
A collaboration between The Joffrey Ballet and the Australian Ballet. The world premiere of “Anna Karenina” tells a challenging love story set in 19th century Russia with music by award-winning composer Illya Demustky. Use promo code CTW19 for Chicago Theater Week pricing.
2. Noises Off (Irving Park)
This comedy is about an amateur theater troupe trying to pull off a performance — and it’s off to a comically bad start. The show is performed at Windy City Playhouse and the audience is invited to move throughout the play to experience to show up close.
3. Friends! the Musical Parody (Streeterville)
Fans of the popular sitcom get to go back to Central Perk and laugh at some of the best moments of the show. This comedic musical pokes a little fun at the decade-long running show. I’m hoping Marcel the monkey makes an appearance!
I hope you snag tickets to the shows you’d like to see. It’s an awesome time to enjoy the city’s theater scene!
