Lookingglass Theatre Company at Water Tower Water Works

Time Out says

The most recognizable face in the theater’s lobby might belong to old Friend David Schwimmer, but expect nothing of the sitcom variety inside the theater of this spectacle troupe. Taking its name from the hallucinatory world of Lewis Carroll, the playful 20-year-old company put itself on the map by mounting cirque-influenced, highly physical renditions of classic literature and myths. In 2011, Lookingglass became the fifth Chicago institution to receive the Tony Award for regional theater, following in the footsteps of the Goodman, Steppenwolf, Victory Gardens and Chicago Shakespeare Theater.

What’s on

“The Steadfast Tin Soldier”

Hans Christian Andersen's tragic Christmas tale is a yearly staple at Lookingglass Theatre. Clocking in at just under an hour runtime, the show dazzles with a gorgeous set, whimsical costuming and plenty of doll-like pantomime.
