Category: THEATRE MUSICAL / PLAY
Things are looking up for recovering alcoholic Jackie and his girlfriend Veronica—until Jackie spots another man’s hat in their apartment and embarks on a sublimely incompetent quest for vengeance. Fast-paced and uproarious, Mother is a gleefully foul-mouthed look at modern love and other addictions. Ensemble member Anna D. Shapiro, director of the acclaimed Broadway premiere, returns to direct the Steppenwolf production.
Please note this play contains adult language: an honest, authentic mash-up of poetry and profanity (that’s a lotta fun).

Mr. Bones MCs an Evening Filled With “Boo-tifuL” Burlesque and Halloween-Themed Variety Acts
CHICAGO – The Kiss Kiss Cabaret (KKC) proudly presents its annual “Peek-A-Boo: An Ooky Spooky Halloween Burlesque” (“Peek-A-Boo”), Fridays September 28 through October 26 at 11 p.m. at the Greenhouse Theater Center, 2257 N. Lincoln. Hosted by Mr. Bones, “Peek-A-Boo” showcases Halloween-themed burlesque performances by special guests Red Rum, Sauda Namir, Viva La Muerte and Ammunition. The evening concludes with an eye-popping, glow-in-the-dark finale, inspired by the song, “Red Right Hand”.
The Kiss Kiss Cabaret was originally conceived when producers Chris O. Biddle and Jenn A. Kincaid created the first “Peek-A-Boo” burlesque show in October, 2009 at the Greenhouse Theater Center. The success of that five-week run was the impetus for forming the current weekly revue. Continue reading Peek-A-Boo: Kiss Kiss Cabaret Halloween Burlesque→
“I love what burlesque has to offer the audience,” said Chris O.
Biddle, creator and director of “The Kiss Kiss Cabaret”. “I
can’t think of any other art form that mixes comedy and sensuality the
way burlesque does. Our show is a modern performance, yet it pays
homage to the past. If you went back in time to the 1920’s and saw a
show at Minsky’s burlesque in New York City, you would see a show
similar to what ‘The Kiss Kiss Cabaret’ offers.”
Luftwerk is the collaborative vision of Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero. New media installations merge video and light with material, surface, and structure, shaping content into an immersive sculptural experience. Their work illuminates the realm of special events, live performance, gallery and public venue, in locations as diverse as MASS MoCA, JFK Airport, Emirates Palace, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater and Robie House.
This February, Millennium Park is transformed into a digital canvas of light and geometrical form with its first-ever site-specific video and sound installation by the Chicago-based artistic ensemble Luftwerk. Created specifically for Millennium Park, the installation will illuminate Cloud Gate – known by many Chicagoans as “The Bean” – and its surrounding AT&T Plaza with dramatic images and colors set to music composed by Owen Clayton Condon, of the local avant-garde classical ensemble, Third Coast Percussion.
Luminous Field will be on view on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6 – 10 PM, and Sunday – Thursday evenings from 6 – 9 PM.
