Friday, February 17 and Saturday, February 18 I Crowded House: An Explosion of The Winter's Tale  "Crowded House" is an explosion of William Shakespeare's "The Winter's Tale."  Audience members will follow a tour guide, room to room, exploring an environment of jealousy, rage, death, love and life. This experiential "translation" remixes Shakespeare's original story by means of sound, object, bodies and creative juiciness. A directing ensemble of nine of the top young directors in Chicago welcome you into this extraordinary theatrical event. Get affected, excited, inspired, take a breather and finally party your ass off at "A Crowded House." This event begins at the Blue Line Lounge in Wicker Park and travels to the Wicker Park Art Center just a few blocks away!

Friday, February 17 to Sunday, March 25 I Diary of a Madman  "Diary of a Madman," is based on the story by renown Russian literary genius Nikolai Gogol. This short play is an intense journey where the audience is taken on an exploration of the relationship between psyche and social class. An explosive one man show.
