The Blue Man Group has paved the way for many nonconventional productions such as Stomp, Tap Dogs, and De La Guarda. Since they opened in New York City in 1991, audiences from all over the world have seen their show. Smart silliness, neon-colored paint, cereal, and other wildly inventive props add to their visual appeal. This production opened at the Briar Street Theatre in October 1997 to an overwhelmingly enthusiastic reception
Chicago Tap Theatre's third remount of Changes is an homage to the science fiction serials of the 1940s, revisited through the music of David Bowie and the medium of tap dance. From the creative team behind Time Steps comes this science fiction tale of aliens, fame-hungry despots, unforgettable tap dancing, and the power of Bowie. In Changes, Chicago Tap Theatre develops a narrative of a planet inhabited by peace-loving aliens, and the events that unfold when they encounter both a power-hungry species from another world and a potential hero.
In Luzia, a waking dream transports audiences to an imaginary Mexico. They experience a wondrous world that invites them, enveloped in light and nurtured by rain, to explore their senses. Inspired by the cultural richness of Mexico, Cirque du Soleil's Luzia features original music by Canadian composer Simon Carpentier. The show's album takes Carpentier's music (written for a live acoustic setting) and passes it through the filter of the electro-pop of Nortec Collective's Bostich + Fussible with an infusion of brassy Mexican and Latin American sounds.
Singer-songwriter and nationally touring recording artist Jess Godwin (Fool Me Once) pours her vulnerable heart and dynamic voice into Elton John's greatest hits. John's simple, soulful love songs captivate audiences worldwide. His sometimes eccentric, always heartfelt blend of classical, gospel, and rock perfectly suits the sensitive and courageous Godwin. Tony Award winner and Jess Godwin fan Kristin Chenoweth says, "I just love her voice…she gets it." Godwin shines while delivering piano-driven, chart-topping hits like "Your Song," "Rocket Man," and "Benny and the Jets."
Join Barrel of Monkeys for a magical night of stories written by kids and performed by some of the Chicago's most talented actors and musicians.
