    Fulton Market apartments, St. Boniface condo plan clear key city vote
    Thursday's meeting of the Chicago Plan Commission saw a number of new developments approved over the course of the long-more than six hours-and topsy-turvy public hearing. This month's meeting was particularly eventful as nearly two dozen activists interrupting the proceedings to protest the Obama Foundation's lacks of a formalized community benefits agreement with regards to the proposed Obama Presidential Center.

ISO venue for tiny ceremony

We are getting married August 26th and having a brunch reception at Summer House in Lincoln Park. Our only struggle has been finding a place to have our ceremony since it’s only 30 people total (including us and officiant/photographer). We want to have a short (20-minute) ceremony so we don’t feel like it would make sense to pay the $600 permit for having it in a park and most venues are catered for those who have large weddings.

We are getting married August 26th and having a brunch reception at Summer House in Lincoln Park. Our only struggle has been finding a place to have our ceremony since it’s only 30 people total (including us and officiant/photographer). We want to have a short (20-minute) ceremony so we don’t feel like it would make sense to pay the $600 permit for having it in a park and most venues are catered for those who have large weddings.

We would love some suggestions of beautiful places nearby that would host a short and tiny ceremony. We would even be open to working with someone who has a beautiful backyard who would be willing to have us for a quick Sunday morning ceremony!

Thanks :)

Rainn Wilson delights in Steppenwolf's quip-filled 'The Doppelganger'

Location: Steppenwolf Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted St., Chicago, (312) 335-1650 or steppenwolf.org

    Rainn Wilson delights in Steppenwolf's quip-filled 'The Doppelganger'
    For playwright Matthew-Lee Erlbach, farce is the spoonful of sugar that helps the medicine go down. The medicine, he explains in a Steppenwolf Theatre video, is righteous outrage over indigenous people in impoverished yet mineral-rich nations exploited by capitalists-without-conscience. Erlbach administers a generous dose in his nearly great comedy "The Doppelgänger (an international farce)," premiering at Chicago's Steppenwolf.

Steppenwolf’s Doppelgänger doesn’t take its farce seriously enough

Through 5/27: Wed-Fri 7:30 PM, Sat 3 and 8 PM, Sun 3 and 7:30 PM, Tue 7:30 PM, Steppenwolf Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted, 312-335-1650, steppenwolf.org, $30-$112.

    Steppenwolf's Doppelgänger doesn't take its farce seriously enough
    In his dark comedy about an avaricious, ill-tempered British plutocrat who switches places with a sweet, mild-mannered American kindergarten teacher (both played with considerable comic verve by Rainn Wilson), Matthew-Lee Erlbach pays homage to a brace of farceurs, among them Eugène Marin Labiche, Georges Feydeau, Joe Orton, Charles Ludlam, and Michael Frayn.

'The Doppelganger': Rainn Wilson trades 'The Office' for a gutsy, messy 'international farce' at Steppenwolf

Where: Steppenwolf Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted St.

    'The Doppelganger': Rainn Wilson trades 'The Office' for a gutsy, messy 'international farce' at Steppenwolf
    Can you combine the post-colonial atrocities, the internal corruption, the ceaseless profiteering that still afflicts Africa, the mother continent of humanity, with the rubric of a knockdown, drag-out, no-holds-barred farce?
