My Manana Comes  
Teatro Vista at Victory Gardens Theater - Biograph My Manana Comes
My Manana Comes is a fun and high-energy production that exposes the travails of immigrant workers and how their quest for the American Dream often clashes with society's views on immigration.

Nightmares on Lincoln Ave Se7en: I SAW What You Did Last Summer  
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.

The Price  
TimeLine Theatre Company The Price
In a New York brownstone marked for demolition, two estranged brothers meet to sort through and sell their late father's belongings-a pile of relics and old furniture buried by a lifetime's worth of family baggage.

The Producers  
Stage 773 The Producers
Mel Brooks' outrageous Tony-winning musical comedy The Producers tells the story of broke Broadway producer Max Bialystock and his accountant, Leo Bloom. Desperate for cash, these two schemers hatch a plan to produce a musical that's sure to be a failure so they can cut and run with the unspent production money. But when their "big flop" turns out to be a huge hit, they're in trouble. Based on the classic 1968 film, and featuring a show-within-a-show -- the hilariously tasteless Springtime for Hitler -- The Producers skewers the over-the-top absurdities of musical theater while delivering a heartfelt tale of the true friendship that develops between two would-be con artists. Catch this Nightblue Performing Arts Company production of the classic comedy at Stage 773 in Chicago.
The Revel  
The House Theatre of Chicago at Chopin Theatre The Revel

Ride the Cyclone  
Chicago Shakespeare Theater Ride the Cyclone
This fall marks the Chicago debut of Ride the Cyclone, a new musical with a refreshingly offbeat twist. Part comedy, part tragedy -- and wholly unexpected -- this wildly imaginative story delivers surprises at every turn. The lives of six teenagers from a Canadian chamber choir are cut short in a freak accident aboard a roller coaster. 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.
