In Like A Lion-3 Theatre-4 Ticket #Give Away!


Hope you had a happy leap day!   The kids had a blast yesterday, figuring out they'd both just be celebrating their 2nd actual birthdays if they were born Februrary 29th.   Then they figured how old they'll be the next time they experience a 2/29--12 & 14 respectively.

Today March comes in like a we have the lion's share of awesome, family friendly theatre tickets for YOU!
*Enter at the bottom of this post for 4 tickets to Lost & Found at Actor's Gym, Taming of the Shrew at Chicago Shakespeare and The Giver at Adventure Stage.  

What reviewers are saying about
Lost & Found: A Recycled Circus...

"The caliber of their circus arts is truly top notch. This colorful extravaganza combines all of our favorite elements...We were quite impressed with the cast..."- ChilL Live Shows

"...thrilled by the performances of the cast. The show features a tender and sweet storyline throughout with many moments of hilarity and humor. Lots of ideas are at work here, from an innovative reference to our tech-obsessed culture to an old fashioned boy gets girl tale." - Green Parent Chicago

"This sweet, small circus combines performances by professional artists, a spirited ensemble of semiprofessional teens, and a gang of precocious child actors. In less expert hands it could've ended up a cloying, chaotic mess. But somehow director Larry DiStasi and his team of talented collaborators have woven these disparate elements into an energetic, entertaining, totally satisfying gallimaufry. The props by Bruce Rogers and Mike Sullivan and the costumes by Elizabeth Wislar are delightful. The teen acrobats are dazzling. David Caitlin is at once hilarious and moving as a technology-distracted dad, while the other adult performers-led by Lindsey Noel Whiting, Will Howard, and Chris Mathews-give the show a heartfelt through line. And the kids (all children of Lookingglass Theatre ensemble members) are total scene-stealers." 
- Chicago Reader
