Dear John Hughes | Broadway Playhouse | Theater & Performance | Chicago Reader
This is a past event.
When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through March 15 2015
Price: $32-$79
This musical tribute to writer-director John Hughes interleaves scenes from his shallow but popular teen comedies (The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Weird Science, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) with the overplayed pop songs he featured in his movies. The show's charming, energetic performers (Olivia Harris, James Byous, and Rumer Willis are standouts) deliver the material with more gusto and inventiveness than it deserves. Too bad Hughes is the laureate of the spoiled white, upper-middle-class American teen (yay! my dad has a Jaguar XJ6; boohoo, he won’t let me drive it). This tribute is no better. —Jack Helbig
