The Greatest Story Never Told  
Under The Gun Theater The Greatest Story Never Told
 
A hapless narrator stumbles onto the stage and discovers a storybook with no text inside! The piano player gets a text message that none of the actors are coming to perform today! The solution to this conundrum is to have the children in the audience volunteer to come on stage and make up a character in The Greatest Story Never Told! Along with "The Greatest Interns," the kids throw on silly costumes and improvise scenes and songs for a story inspired by audience suggestions. "The Greatest Interns" are played by a rotating cast of professional adult improvisers who are particularly adept at performing with kids who may have little or no performance experience. After the show, designers collaborate and transform the improvised story into a purchasable digital and physical storybook.

As Amor attempts to run his errand and grapple with his own anxieties, we follow him through a fraught 24 hours, cautiously navigating the city he calls home.

La boheme  
Lyric Opera La boheme
 
Puccini's story of love, loss and the artistic world of 19th-century Paris comes to vibrant life in this stunning production at Lyric Opera of Chicago. A huge hit when it premiered it in 1896, the opera's popularity and power hasn't dimmed since. Featuring strikingly designed sets and costumes, not to mention an exciting cast of singers, including Maria Agresta, Michael Fabiano, Danielle de Niese, Zachary Nelson and more, La boheme finds the poor poet Rodolfo and the painter Marcello drawn into a tangle of love and jealousy after the frail Mimi knocks on their door. These youthful dreamers navigate the complicated maze of romance amid the colorful Bohemian enclaves of the city and its snowy streets, until they realize they can no longer hide from the world's harsh realities.
   
La Ruta  
Steppenwolf Theatre La Ruta
 
To the U.S.-owned factories in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, La Ruta is just a bus. But to the hundreds of women who live, work and often disappear along the route, it's so much more than that. Inspired by real testimonies, and using live music to evoke factory work and protest marches, La Ruta is a visceral unearthing of secrets buried in the desert and a celebration of the Mexican women who stand resiliently in the wake of loss.
   
Late Nite Catechism  
Royal George Theatre Late Nite Catechism
 
Late Nite Catechism is an uproariously funny play, written by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan, where the irrepressible Sister teaches class to a roomful of "students." Throughout the course of the play the benevolent instructor rewards audience members for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and other nifty prizes. Naughty students may well find themselves on stage sitting in a corner reflecting their actions. Now in its 20th year in Chicago, Late Nite Catechism is a sharp satire, but never mean. It’s simply an evening of fun and laughter.
