Only a passing el train makes Throatpunch feel real

Through 6/3: Thu-Sat 8 PM, Sun 7 PM, Chicago Mosaic School, 1101 W. Granville, nothingwithoutacompany.org, $20, $10 students and industry.

    Only a passing el train makes Throatpunch feel real
    Attitude is essential to selling a punk play, but Nothing Without a Company's production of Sharon Krome's Throatpunch doesn't deliver on the promise of its aggressive title. Flat performances plague this tale of three young punks holed up in a small apartment in 1983 Chicago, where they play bad music, experiment with drugs, and hook up in different configurations.
