Ride the Cyclone Sep 29 - Nov 8, 2015  
Chicago Shakespeare Theater Ride the Cyclone

A mechanical fortune-teller invites each one to tell his or her story of a life interrupted, offering them all the chance to come to terms with their fates. At once quirky and smart, edgy and beautiful, Ride the Cyclone ultimately reveals the resilience of the human spirit in spite of senseless tragedy. This inventive musical from Jacob Richmond and Brooke Maxwell hits the upstairs stage at Chicago Shakespeare Theater.
