Sandwiched between Halloween and Christmas, November offers a bounty of theater productions for just about every mood. Stay spooky with Manual Cinema’s Frankenstein, or embrace the holiday spirit with Mary Zimmerman’s Steadfast Tin Soldier. Lean into those winter feels with Danai Gurira’s family comedy Familiar, or skip on ahead to spring with Shakespeare’s rom-com Twelfth Night, or What You Will at Writers Theatre. From afrofuturism to a tale about down-on-their-luck security guards to the premiere of Rightlynd, Ike Holter’s latest, these are the eight shows you should check out in Chicago this month.
