Chicago show

We are going to be in Chicago later this month and want to see a couple of shows. We have already seen Wicked. So we are considering getting tickets to "Spelling Bee". I have not read many reviews. Is this a good show? Any other suggestions???

Check the show site at: www.spellingbeethemusical.com. It has info on the B'way, SF and Chicago productions.

There are lots of other choices right now. The Chicago Shakespeare Theatre on Navy Pier is doing A Flea in Her Ear and Macbeth, Spamalot opens April 18 at the Palace, and Urinetown is at the Mercury Theatre.

Check www.playbill.com and click on Regional/Tours or www.metromix.com

Hi rubytwo,
Are you interested in dramatic plays while in Chicago? Or are you more interested in the genre of musicals or comedies? I have some suggestions, but don't want to bore you if they're not exactly what you're looking for.

I don't know much about the company doing it, but A Flea In Her Ear is a wonderfully funny classic French farce. It has mistaken identities, slamming doors, revolving beds, a wild Spaniard who lisps, and a man with a bad speech impediment, all cloaked in turn of the century costumes and sets. It's a fun evening.

And have you seen Urinetown? It's a bizarre, but I think very good musical about a time when people have to pay to pee.
