Nightmares on Lincoln Ave Se7en: I SAW What You Did Last Summer Oct 9 - Oct 31, 2015  
Cornservatory Nightmares on Lincoln Ave Se7en: I SAW What You Did Last Summer
In this hilarious and creepy incarnation, five eccentric strangers with a common secret awaken in an unknown warehouse and must work together to escape before time runs out. Little do they know they're at the mercy of Jean Wilder, a villain who fancies himself after Willy Wonka, who has ensnared them to choose one as a sacrifice to save the world from impending doom. With elements of such horror classics as "Saw," "I Know What You Did Last Summer," "Se7en," and "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," this clever, hysterical, frightening, and thought-provoking romp nods at horror clichés before throwing them out the window. And of course we are BYOB…as always.

Sylvia Oct 14 - Oct 25, 2015  
The Joffrey Ballet at Auditorium Theatre Sylvia
Joffrey Ballet's 60th anniversary season continues with the U.S. premiere of the fierce, female-powered ballet Sylvia. With its story of unrequited love and deception set to brilliant choreography by John Neumeier and music by Leo Delibes, Sylvia is a visually stunning and emotionally resonant work that uses movement to explore themes of ambition, obsession and lost opportunities. Neumeier was the first choreographer to modernize the work, incorporating neoclassical expressionist movement and an abstract narrative to reimagine this full-length story ballet about a young woman at the crossroads of adolescence and womanhood, struggling to find balance between strength and vulnerability -- and discovering love only through the awakening of her own sensuality.

In 2010, Angie McMahon was six months pregnant and organizing a Chicago satellite event for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert's Rally to Restore Sanity in Washington D.C. The Day Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert Nearly Killed Me is her story of how it all went down. In 38 days McMahon got $25,000 donated, was denied city permits and procured a Jumbotron to broadcast the event live while local comedians performed. Seven thousand people showed up to the event, and about 4,000 left before it ended (but not before each and everyone of them screamed at her for various reasons). Five years later, McMahon's ready to tell her story in the most hilarious way she knows how.

ColorBox Theatre at Royal George Theatre In the Asylum with Edgar Allan Poe
Konow recreates Poe's most favored stories and poems from this perspective in a way that has never been done before, challenging madness versus sanity and begging the question: what truly defines madness and what is simply a different way of looking at life? These efforts lead the play into five highly theatrical, fantastical performances of terror and mystery, recreating the famous writer's finest stories: "The Raven," "Silence," "The Bells," "The Fall of the House of Usher" and "The Tell-Tale Heart."
