With just hours until opening night of the comic farce, "Nothing On", an amateur theater troupe still has plenty of work to be performance-ready. Between mistaken props, forgotten lines, inner-cast discord, and a torrent of awful acting, one can't help but wonder if these eager thespians can successfully make it to the stage, or will they end up running around with their pants (quite literally) at their ankles? Presented in three acts, "Noises Off" typically features a revolving stage that rotates to show audiences the front and back of a theater. For this production, to bring guests closer to the humor onstage (and off), the audience can move around and see the action from all angles. Returning to Chicago's Windy City Playhouse to create this experience is the duo behind the uniquely intimate setup of 2017's "Becky Shaw": Director Scott Weinstein and Scenic Designer Jeffrey D. Kmiec. [less-]

"TAKE ME" is a world premiere musical by Mark Guarino featuring all-new original songs by Jon Langford (The Mekons, Waco Brothers).
