So very very glad I went here on my visit to Chicago. A tiny very cool venue with wonderfully outlandish structured improvised avant-garde (for lack of a better word) theater. So entertaining risky and daring and most of all fun. Go!!!!!

We spent 4 days in Chicago and did all the major museums. Probably too much for our 8 year old. This was the highlight of the trip. I didn't know what to expect from "That's Weird Grandma" and I'm still not sure what to think...More

Wife and I took our 9 year old and 11 year old to see "that's weird grandma" and it was a great night of theatre. All the stories are written by children from CPS schools and the troupe turns them in to imaginative, fun, entertaining...More

Assuming you can get up the very steep stairs to the second floor above the funeral parlor, you are in for a treat. Innovative company with remarkable players, I have never seen a bad show and you may think it is going to be funny,...More

Loved the Neo-Futurist show. It's hard to describe; they perform up to 30 short "plays" in 60 minutes -- or as many as they can get through. Hilarious, poignant, silly, beautiful, irreverent, musical, frenetic.... It's the total experience. It's unlike anything out there, it has...More

It's late, it's crazy, it's more like performance art than a play, and it's remarkably consistent after nearly 30 years running. An entire experience from waiting in line, to waiting inside, to paying, getting a name tag and program menu, and the show itself. Some...More
