ComedyComboPicCrop-400x477Yay, open mic night! The opportunity for anyone to get up and preform anything. But that’s not really how it works at Annoyance. Here, a lively hour of great comedy is divided into improvisers and stand-up acts. Together, improvisers have 25 minutes together on stage and each stand-up act has five minutes. At Annoyance, there is a good mix of regulars and newbies and plenty of laughs to be had. Each night has a different theme picked that night and while the theme might vary, you’re guaranteed a good time.

There will be a Open Mic night at Annoyance theatre every Saturday at 9:30 PM through April 18. Tickets are free and sign up starts at 9 PM.

The Real World: Space Edition

Posted on by Kyle Jenkins Posted in Around Town, Explore Chicago, Theatre, Weekend Update | Leave a comment

The A.V. Club, the pop culture subsidiary of The Onion, recently published an article about the need to get rid of TV “confessional” shots during reality shows. It’s an unnecessary addition to an art form (if you can call it that) that is already far from reality as possible. Oh YEAH, A.V. Club? Well what about if those shows happened in SPACE??? Exactly, totally changes the game. See what I mean by checking out The Real World: Space Edition this weekend at The Pub House Theatre!

After the Civil Stellar Battles, space is once again peaceful. Aboard a spaceship, one commander is meant to take the reins from another. And if that went smoothly, then Writer/Director Stephen Kropa would be out of a job! Instead, he creates a tale of backstabbing, betrayals and yes, confessionals, that could only have been spawned form the soupy mess of reality TV shows. Don’t wait! Text your buddies Kim, Khloé and Kourtney to come see the final weekend of this stellar production!

The Real World: Space Edition will run at The Pub House Theatre, located at 3914 N. Clark Street. The final two performances are this weekend, March 27-28, with both performances beginning at 8 PM. Tickets cost $15. To see what else is in production at The Pub House Theatre, follow the link here.

Beginning its run March 25, Nora and Delia Ephron’s hit play Love, Loss, and What I Wore comes to Oak Brook’s First Folio Theatre. The show, which features a rotating cast of five women, is comprised of monologues of defining moments in each character’s life (and, of course, what they were wearing in each instance). From first bras to little black dresses, each article of clothing evokes meaningful memories for each character.

First Folio Theatre’s production of Love, Loss, and What I Wore runs until April 26. For more information, click here. Tickets cost $22 – $39 and can be purchased here. Directions to the theater are available at First Folio’s website.
