Rhinofest Prop Thtr January 16
The Rhinoceros Theater Festival is billed as "Chicago's longest running fringe festival," but last year's edition took a different tack from the 27 before it. Or seemed to, anyway. »
Poor Jim Lehrer. Like those hapless souls in horror movies who somehow catch Satan's eye, the distinguished former PBS news anchor has stumbled into Mickle Maher's sights. »
Art AIDS America Chicago Alphawood Gallery December 15
A shuttered branch of MB Financial Bank sits on the northeast corner of Fullerton and Halsted. It's a bland, corporate, auburn brick building with rectangular aquamarine glass windows that's unmistakably a dispiriting white-collar business. »

Stories, monologues, and more by this all-female comedy troupe and recent Best of Chicago winners.

Fantastic Super Great Nation Numero Uno Second City E.T.C. January 19
In the weeks and now days leading up to the inauguration, it seems like the jokes about Trump and the current state of our political climate are basically writing themselves. Between rumors of golden showers and the president-elect's meeting with Steve Harvey, it sometimes feels as if we're all living in one long political sketch. »

Uptown Poetry Slam Green Mill July 10
Featuring open mike, special guests, and end-of-the-night competition.
The sole character in Glen Berger's one-act, an anxious and depressed librarian played by Darren Hill, is something of a dramatic one-man band. He wears a mike and speaker around his neck, fumbles around setting up the only props (a projector screen and piece of brown paper), then furiously clicks through slides as he relays his obsessive search for the borrower of a book that's 113 years overdue. »
Fat Babies Green Mill December 20
With few exceptions, those practicing the sort of traditional jazz popularized in New Orleans and Chicago during the 20s and early 30s essentially believe and traffic in museum-grade preservation. They play for audiences living in time-travel fantasies, preferring to ignore the music made over the last 80 years as they seek Charleston partners. »
