This month on Chicago’s stages, the legendary Mike Nussbaum plays an aged Albert Einstein at Northlight, Silk Road Rising and Remy Bumppo put a South Asian spin on Dickens, the Goodman offers up two world premiere plays and the Marriott Theatre gets romantic with She Loves Me.

Plus, don’t miss a slew of intriguing Chicago premieres at TimeLine, Haven, Jackalope, Halcyon and more, and director Devon de Mayo breathes new life into that old imaginary-rabbit chestnut Harvey in Hyde Park. Better start laying out your calendars now.
