Liz Lauren

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 30 2016
Price: $27-$60
Filth and felt have had a winning relationship onstage in shows such as Avenue Q. The twist in Robert Askins's 2011 dark comedy is that the raunchy puppet is attached to an unwilling, godly Christian body. A kid in rural Texas gets possessed and becomes a terrified ventriloquist to a googly-eyed satanic spirit. The casting of Chicago darling Alex Weisman in Victory Gardens' production bodes well for this vulnerable, sardonic, bitingly funny play. Gary Griffin directs. —Dan Jakes
