In Red Theater’s Brutal Sickle, Four Village Women Try to Survive the Ukrainian Genocide

Sickle by Red Theater continues at Strawdog Theatre, 1802 W. Berenice, through July 29. Tickets are $20 for performances Thursday-Sunday.

    In Red Theater's Brutal Sickle, Four Village Women Try to Survive the Ukrainian Genocide - Third Coast Review
    One of the missions of theater is to tell untold stories, as Elizabeth Lovelady points out in her director's note for Sickle, the new production at Red Theater. The story of the Holodomor, the Ukrainian famine of 1932-33, is certainly one of those untold stories. The word Holodomor is Ukrainian for "killing by hunger."

    Review: Steppenwolf's Lightweight The Roommate Aims for Laughs Over Depth - Third Coast Review
    Search the Chicago theater listings far and wide this summer and you will find very few productions with two 50-something women at the center of the production, if any (and no, Cher doesn't count). Steppenwolf Theatre's The Roommate, a new play by Jen Silverman under Phylicia Rashad's direction, on through August 5, not only features these...

  • Anita W. in Wrigleyville 30-year resident

    Curated being the buzz word du jour. Got old really fast.

  • Jeffrey Littleton If you can't be a poet, be the poem.

    I love a nice well curated meal.

    Mercury Theater's Avenue Q Remount a Welcome Return for 2018 - Third Coast Review
    Since it first premiered in 2003, the hot-button topics of the puppet-based musical, Avenue Q, seem to have only become hotter and hotter. Racism, homophobia, even post-graduate, millennial strife seem to have deepened in the 15 years since the production first took critics and audiences by storm.

    Review: AI Weiwei's Trace: a Sobering Look at the Price Paid by Dissidents - Third Coast Review
    The first thing that struck me walking into the building that houses Trace, a four-story art installation created by Chinese artist and activist Ai WeiWei, was the stark stone staircase in the lobby, eerily reminiscent of a prison guard tower. The comparison is fitting, as Ai Weiwei: Trace in Chicago, hosted by Alphawood Exhibitions, features...

    "Tilikum, the infamous SeaWorld killer whale, has died." That was the headline in the Orlando Sentinel on January 6, 2017. Sideshow Theatre's world premiere production of Tilikum takes the story of that sea creature and creates a poetic, percussive fantasy that demands that we pay attention to a range of social justice issues.
