Nov. 9: Laugh Your Arse Off!
Tomorrow night you can see a brand new play at Artisphere. It’s so new in fact, that it doesn’t even exist yet. The Improvised Shakespeare Company of Chicago will create two completely different plays at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. based on audience suggestions. But this isn’t your average improv show. The hour-long performance will be in Elizabethan style as the players incorporate themes and language used by the Great Bard, William Shakespeare.

Nov. 8-17: The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe
The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe opens tonight at Thomas Jefferson Community Theatre in Arlington. Kids can watch the classic story by C.S. Lewis come to life in this Encore Stage & Studio production that follows four children from the inside of an old piece of furniture to a magical world called Narnia, where animals talk and the battle between good and evil rages on. The show is recommended for ages 4 and up.
