I don’t know the details, but Chicago Tap Theatre is performing in New York City this weekend, go see them if you’re in the area.  More details are available here, I think.

El Circo Cheap – West Coast Style

I happened to be in LA a week or so back for about 24 hours.

It so happened that some friends of mine from Aloft Aerial Dance were in town doing some performances as part of their El Circo Cheapo Get Rich Slow Tour.  So I, of course, wanted to stop by and take some photos.  That’s where the performance images that will be appearing over the next week or two came from.

If you happen to be in Chicago I highly recommend you go see El Circo Cheapo.  It’s worth the money, easy, and a really fun Friday night.

Little Dead Riding Hood

More images from Little Dead Riding Hood, the current show by my much beloved Chicago Tap Theatre.  If you’ve got free time over the next two weekends it’s a good way to spend an evening or Sunday afternoon.  Trust me here.

My favorite part is of course when Little Red dies.  Some people think I’m a little whacky/disturbed.  (Can you believe they’re going to let me raise a kid?  Ever watch Dexter?)

Find out more and get tickets here.

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.
