And check out the rest of the series, which includes:
Well-Strung is a NYC-based all-male quartet of classical string musicians that sing, putting their own spin on the music of Mozart, Vivaldi, Rihanna, Adele, Lady Gaga, and others. The quartet's performances have sold-out to crowds in Provincetown and New York, and each member of the quartet can be found playing for several Broadway and off-Broadway shows. Titled as "the hottest things with a bow since Jennifer Lawrence in 'The Hunger Games'" by the New York Daily News, their performance interspersing classical and pop-music selections is delightful and novel.
October 18 and October 19 | 6 PM at the Center on Halsted, Hoover Leppen Theatre. $50 Includes Performance and Cash Bar; VIP: $250 | General Admission: $150 Includes Seated Dinner and Open Bar. To order tickets, please go here.
The Normal Heart
Special preview performance of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart produced by TimeLine Theatre Company at Stage 773.

The Normal Heart follows Ned Weeks, a gay activist enraged at the unresponsiveness of public officials and the gay community. While trying to save the world from itself, he confronts the personal toll of AIDS when his lover dies of the disease. Originally produced Off-Broadway at New York's Public Theater in 1985, TimeLine's production of The Normal Heart will be the first Chicago staging of the play since its Tony Award-winning Broadway premiere in 2011. The production stars award-winning director and leading actor, David Cromer.
