Time Out says

Once home to the Tony-winning Victory Gardens company, and the legendary Organic Theater Company and Body Politic before it, this facility now serves as a rental house with four theaters of varying sizes. Among the many dependable companies that call it home: Eclipse Theatre (which devotes each of its seasons to a single American playwright), Theatre Seven of Chicago (a young ensemble devoted to Chicago premieres and new works), Remy Bumppo (a dapper and intelligent company that produces high-minded literary classics) and MPAACT (a company of new and nontraditional African-American works).

The Buttcracker: A Nutcracker Burlesque

  • Cabaret and burlesque

Leave the kiddos at home and enjoy the bite of this burlesque variety show inspired by the classic holiday tale. This rendition of The Nutcracker is much more sexy than the Joffrey Ballet's, following an office administrator on a hallucinogenic and sensual journey that features magic, sword balancing, fire spinning and plenty of skin. Plus, check the schedule for special events before performances, like burlesque 101 and an ugly sweater contest.
