Great Plays and Music in Lincoln Park
Native Gardens @ Victory Gardens Theater
2433 N Lincoln
“her comedy really blooms in the dialogue and the details-both cultivated with consideration by director Marti Lyons and a blue-ribbon cast, who sow a healthy sense of the precariousness of politeness, particularly when race, class and age are in the mix.” – Time Out Chicago
PASS OVER @ Steppenwolf Theatre
1650 N Halsted
“All three of the performances are excellent, a complex trifecta of race, power and authority. To her great credit, Taymor really takes you there, whether or not you care to go.” – Chicago Tribune
Strangest Things! The Musical @ Greenhouse Theatre
2257 N Lincoln
“…The full original cast of Random Acts’ Netflix series parody, directed by Tommy Rivera-Vega, returns for this extension, which combines sketch-style comedy and Stranger Things-themed versions of 80s karaoke standards.” – Chicago Reader
Surfer Blood @ Lincoln Hall
2424 N Lincoln
“Floridians Surfer Blood play catchy, deeply Pixies-indebted indie rock, lined with light reverb, hooky guitars and, yes, surf stylings.” – Time Out Chicago
