That's Weird, Grandma

Open run: Mon 8 PM

Late in Barrel of Monkeys' newest program of writing by Chicago elementary school students, an actress sings a fourth grader's list of things that once made him happy but are now gone forever. It's a simple, earnest, deeply affecting scene—and about the only moment in this cursory, slapdash 45-minute show when anyone appears to take the children's writing seriously. The rest of the time director Molly Brennan's cast play everything for cheap laughs, turning the sweet, unguarded texts into excuses for self-consciously hokey theater (and in two of the scenes, the kids' texts are jettisoned entirely). The uninventive staging, the perfunctory performances, and the incessant dumbing-down insult the intelligence of children and audience alike. —Justin Hayford $5-$10

phone 773-275-5255

The Neo-Futurists perform 30 plays in 60 minutes in this "futurist evening in the grand Italian tradition." The fare changes weekly in this long-running production; between two and 12 new scripts are performed each week depending on the roll of a die. This is funny, wise, nakedly honest, sometimes unsettling, and invariably entertaining theater. —Jennifer Vanasco $9 plus the roll of a die ($10-$15)
