Chicago Tap Theatre is excited to premiere their newest original story show, TightWire, for Chicago audiences of all ages! CTT has gained notoriety for their annual story show, wherein they tell a story using tap dance and live music (not to mention Poetry Slam creator Marc Smith narrating) to convey the story. Their last major collaboration, 2013's Mama's Boy, was chosen as one of the Top 10 Dance Events of 2013 by the Chicago Sun-Times. While retaining the charming and occasionally snarky humor they are known for, this year's show takes a dark and sinister turn in a peek behind the scenes of a traveling Italian circus troupe in the 1930s. Amid the colorful acts that populate this circus, audiences will follow a taciturn ringmaster, eyes always on the bottom line, sisters who have spent their life walking a thin line and a vagabond clown with a mysterious past. Find out what life is really like under the big top.
Identical twins, raised separately and unaware of each other, arrive in a strange town seeking marriage. One is clever, witty, and self-assured, the other timid, shy, and foolish. Confusion becomes conflict as the twins and townspeople are thrown into chaos when cash, jewels, and declarations of love are delivered to the wrong people. Played with utter conviction and charm by the Piccolo Theatre Ensemble, the return of commedia dell'arte characters Beatrice, Brighella, Colombina, Dottore, and beloved Arlecchino are joined by others to fast-paced comic effect in this fresh, energetic production that shimmers with wit and surprise.
Kids, parents, grandparents and school groups, get ready to rock. Wonderland, Alice's Rock & Roll Adventure, a new family musical created by top Chicago director Rachel Rockwell and music director Michael Mahler, is Chicago Children's Theatre's second world premiere in 2014-15, and its big season finale. Chicago's theater scene promises to get curiouser and curiouser when this powerhouse duo of A-list Chicago theater artists, both making their CCT debut, boldly reimagine Lewis Carroll's books Alice in Wonderland and Through the Lookingglass.
Wonderland is the search for one's authentic self. How can you march to the beat of your own drummer when you're still writing the song? Carroll's beloved, poetic tale of self-actualization is brought to life by a cast of actor/ musicians who create an eclectic rock soundtrack as 7-1/2 year-old Alice searches for her own inner musical voice. Ranging from classic rock to punk to ska with a little bit of Bollywood, the actors surround Alice in a rich musical tapestry as she searches for her destiny. Along the way, Alice faces challenges and fears, but meets the ultimate test in the form of the Jabberwocky, an insidious monster made of up of the dark thoughts and self-doubt that lurks inside of us all. In learning to believe in the impossible, Alice learns to believe in herself.
