Upright Grand  
Citadel Theatre Company Upright Grand
 
Dad tickles the ivories in a dive. His daughter dazzles in concert halls. In between them, the bittersweet dance of parent and child, present and past, dream and disappointment plays out in the key of life. Upright Grand, by Chicago-based playwright Laura Schellhardt, is wonderfully schmaltzy and boldly exposes emotion with old fashioned charm.
   
Urinetown  
BoHo Theatre at Stage 773 Urinetown
 
In a dystopian near-future, a terrible water shortage has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! At a time when private companies are controlling more and more of our basic needs and faith in elected officials is at historic lows, URINETOWN challenges both institutions with irreverently humorous satire.

The Women In Black  
WildClaw Theatre Company at The Den Theatre The Women In Black
 
Chicago's premiere horror theater begins their 2017 season by bringing the award-winning stage play based on Susan Hill's classic 1983 novel to Chicago. In this gothic, spine-tingler, a solicitor hires an actor to tutor him in recounting to family and friends a story that has long troubled him. It concerns events that transpired when he attended the funeral of an elderly recluse twenty years ago. There he caught sight of a woman in black, the mere mention of whom terrifies the locals, for she is a specter who haunts the neighborhood. Together, the two men recreate the events of that dark and stormy night. WildClaw is proud to present this true horror theater classic with the distinction of being the longest running non-musical in London's famous West End.
