So, I’m in Chicago for a quick spell. I’m here for one of my favorite performances of the year, actually, probably my favorite performance of the year, the annual Chicago Tap Theatre story show. This year is Little Dead Riding Hood. A story about what happens when fairytale characters are set free to be whomever they want to be (seriously, at one of the meetings about small changes to make, held at a bar after a preview show, hence why I was there, they actually were talking a little bit about changes and what that says about fate. I had a vodka lemonade. Priorities.)
It is, as always, an excellent show, very kid friendly (especially if you go by the German Grimm’s Tales standard) the whole store is told through dance, music, and acting, no words at all. I’d suggest making to a performance, but that’s just me. Personally I’ll be at all the opening weekend shows but I’ll be cheering, for villainy, at the Saturday night show. I’d suggest making the show at some point, but Saturday night I’ll be there causing a ruckus.
Get tickets here.
There will be more photos of the show over the next few days.
