Wild Women of Planet Wongo  
Not Too Fancy Productions at Chopin Theatre Wild Women of Planet Wongo
 
In "Wild Women of Planet Wongo", the audience encounters a world of Amazonian warrior women and their alluring Queen who first meet men when two bumbling astronauts crash onto their purple and green planet. While the guys think they've discovered paradise, hilarity ensues as the Wongo women plan surprises for their captive guests. This zany musical comedy is performed in three acts with no seats or stage. Audience members are encouraged to come dressed up in purple and green and to engage with the actors as they move around the space. During the two intermissions, audience members can further become part of the show by participating in the Wongo Game Shows where they can win prizes, while others can simply observe the fun, dance or replenish their green Wongotini cocktails.
   
You Can't Take It With You  
Oak Park Festival Theatre You Can't Take It With You
 
Welcome to the Sycamore household, a merry melange of free-thinkers, eccentrics, odd-balls, and lovable others. Come in. Sit down. Don't mind the snakes, the fireworks, the less than Bolshoi ballet performances, the typewriter, the general absence of any orthodoxy. And meet Alice, the sweet natured and sanest of this family who has fallen in love with the son of her oh-so-conventional boss. Stay for the hilarity when the prospective in-laws arrive for to dinner to give their blessing to the marriage - on the wrong night - and encounter Alice's peculiar extended family in all their glory. Can these two polar opposite families find common ground? It is madcap 1930's comedy at its very best - but with eternal and urgently timeless message of accepting and embracing life - your own and everyone else's.
