The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Sara Freund

1. See a play

Watch a tale of love and loss in the classic Spanish play, Blood Wedding. This interpretation of Federico García Lorca's 1933 work takes place in Great Depression-era California rather than in rural Andalucía. (Lookinglass Theatre, 821 N Michigan Ave, 7:30pm, $40-$75)

2. Relive classic comedy

Watch beloved comedians you know and love on the big screen at ArcLight Cinema's monthly classic comedy series. Tonight see the Tina Fey, Tim Meadows and other Second City alumni star in the forever popular Mean Girls. (ArcLight Chicago, 1500 N Clybourn Ave, 7pm, $14.50)

3. Hear reel-to-real stories

At Logan Theatre's live storytelling event, Flick Lit, performers tell true and maybe not-so-true tales about the films they love. More than that, the show also features musical guests, film debates and multimedia experiences. (Logan Theatre, 2646 N Milwaukee Ave, 7:30pm, Free)
