Steppenwolf's Garage Rep, now in its fourth year, presents the work of three of Chicago’s most innovative storefront theater companies in rotating rep under Steppenwolf’s banner.
Bailiwick Chicago: "See What I Wanna See"
Michael John LaChiusa’s three-part musical explores lust, greed, murder and redemption through the stories of a 1950s murder noir, a priest’s crisis of faith, and the final tryst of two lovers. A lush musical score combining jazz, pop, classical and Asian influences drives the story telling in this virtuosic piece named by New York magazine as one of the Best Musicals of 2005.
Buzz22 Chicago: "She Kills Monsters"
Agnes's life is turned upside down when she stumbles upon her late sister’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook. As she embarks on an action-packed quest to save her sister's soul, Agnes comes face to face with homicidal fairies, raunchy ogres and blood thirsty cheerleaders, and discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. Qui Nguyen's touching comedy combines real life, fantasy and 90's pop culture in the search for the badass in us all.
Theatre Seven of Chicago: "Blacktop Sky"
Blacktop Sky examines the intersection of love, violence and community inside an institution with a haunting Chicago legacy: the public housing project. After witnessing police rough up a fellow resident of the projects, 18-year-old Ida befriends a young homeless man who sleeps on a nearby bench. As their unlikely friendship grows, will it strengthen her connection to home or drive her away in search of a new life?
Tickets are $20 for each show, or $45 to see all three. That's a great deal!
Garage Rep 2013 runs February 15 - April 21 at 1650 N. Halsted Ave.
