Cascade Drive-In


When you go to a movie theater, there's a decent chance someone will sneeze and you'll contract a horrifying airborne monkey disease (or at least that's what I learned from Outbreak). Not a thing you have to worry about at the drive-in. Plus you can make out, it's BYOB, and it's under ten bucks for a double feature. $5-$9, $14/carload on Tuesday

The Game's Afoot

Through 10/19: Wed 1:30 PM, Thu 1:30 and 8 PM, Fri 8 PM, Sat 5 and 8:30 PM, Sun 2 and 6 PM

Ken Ludwig's comedy thriller premiered in 2011, but like his hits Lend Me a Tenor and Crazy for You, it's designed to feel a lot older. Set in 1933 in the palatial home of real-life Broadway star William Gillette (the original Sherlock Holmes), the play is tailor-made for theater-history buffs; others may find it hard to stay interested given Ludwig's timidly conventional characters and predictable plot twists. Director William Osetek is ably helped by a great set (by Kevin Depinet), terrific costumes (by Maggie Hofmann), and a tight ensemble led by a likable Derek Hasenstab as Gillette—but there's nothing he can do to remove the musty smell. —Jack Helbig $40-$50

Enchanted April

9/6-9/28: Sat-Sun 1 PM

Theatre-Hikes specializes in combining theatrical productions with a walk in the park, with scenes typically presented at points along a guided hike. The company's current production, a stage adaptation of Elizabeth von Arnim's charming 1922 novel about four unhappy Englishwomen transformed by a holiday in Italy, enhances the best qualities of von Arnim's story—its good-hearted optimism and faith in the curative powers of peace and sunshine. Bradley Baker's cast excels at delivering intense, believable performances under less than ideal conditions: the day I saw the show, in Ravenswood Manor Park, two cabs collided no more than 20 feet from the performance; Allison Reinke, alone and in the midst of a monologue, never missed a beat. —Jack Helbig

Lemonheads, Mike Kinsella, Kittyhawk

Fri., Sept. 19, 9 p.m.

The Lemonheads' 1992 album It's a Shame About Ray is a brilliant tangle, with Dando's honeyed voice and pleasantly jangling guitar anchoring songs that brim with fascinating hooks and flourishes but still manage to sound simple and unfussy. It’s rare for an album that so perfectly sums up a particular zeitgeist to age so well. —Miles Raymer, 2009
