1. Straight White Men

2. Oy Vey in a Manger
3. King Ubu
Hilarious, violent, and absurd, King Ubu promises audiences lowbrow humor, ludicrous language, and full-bore puppet carnage all wrapped up into a funhouse take on Macbeth and classical tragedy. Get King Ubu tickets here.
4. Seasonal Disorder
5. The Second City’s Black Side of the Moon
The Second City renews its long-running, hugely-successful partnership with Woolly Mammoth by shining the light of satire on a nation eclipsed by its own divisiveness. Get The Black Side of the Moon tickets here.
6. Les Liaisons Dangereuses
Set just before the French Revolution, Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons) is a glimpse into the lives of beautiful people poised to denigrate and control everyone around them, including each other. Get Les Liaisons Dangereuses tickets here.
