by BWW News Desk - Jul 22, 2016

by BWW News Desk - Jul 22, 2016

MCL Chicago Artistic Director Alex Garday is proud to present a world premiere comedic musical Ayn Rand in Love as part of the summer series.

BWW Review: Starkly Dark and Raw Revival of CABARET Returns Decadently to the Pantages
by Don Grigware - Jul 21, 2016

Now a national tour based on Roundabout Theatre's 2013 revival docks at the Pantages for a mere 3 weeks with a glorious cast headed by Randy Harrison in a big, broad and devilishly fun performance as the Emcee.
