Veteran local sketch group Huggable Riot stages their favorite sketches from the past two years in this revue. The women—Jennifer Allman, Ashley Leisten, and Natalia Via—are definitely the strongest members of this six-person cast. It’s most apparent in sketches like “Dammit Janet” (by Johanna Medrano), featuring a trio of women suffering through spin class, and “Fears” (by Mark Fleming, Charlie Kaplan, and Brianne Goodrum), a spoof on bedtime ghost stories with a welcome feminist bent. Political material, from criticisms of Mayor Emanuel to gun violence statistics, ran through other sketches with a more jarring and less impactful effect. —Marissa Oberlander
