Founded in 2011, the Chicago-based American Chamber Opera features an ensemble committed to singing full-length oratorios in English. Its productions resemble concerts more than traditional opera performances: the music takes center stage as the singers belt and emote in settings that evoke the world of the story with just a few well-placed details.

LIGHT OPERA WORKS showcases first-rate musical theatre productions that draw on a variety of world traditions while employing razor-sharp artistry and skilled performers for a dazzling evening of professional theater. Composed by the creators of My Fair Lady and backed by a lush 24-piece orchestra, Brigadoon spins the yarn of a Scottish town that springs to life just once a year, and the ephemeral romance that develops between a young American and a foxy corseted lass named Fiona. Patrons can air-bagpipe along with classic showtunes, such as "Almost Like Being in Love" and "Waitin' for My Dearie," or roll up programs to offer impassioned backing vocals to the rousing ballad, "The Heather on the Hill." All performances take place in Cahn Auditorium, and today's deal is good for seats in section A, where showgoers will be close enough to tug on a conductor's kilt.

Today buy tickets to the Theatre and Interpretation Center at Northwestern University performance of The Sins of Sor Juana for just $2.. You'll pay just one crisp Jefferson (he's on the $2 bill, fyi), which is 92% off the normal price of $25 to see a brilliant play about the brilliant feminist thinker Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz. Centuries ahead of her time, Sor Juana was a nun in a Mexican convent in the 17th Century who wrote plays and poetry containing highly controversial feminist ideas, to the great frustration of the Catholic Church. Eventually forced to give up her writing by the Church, Sor Juana penned her last piece in her own blood & vowed never to write again. Under the direction of Artistic Director Henry Godinez, The Sins of Sor Juana is a historic fantasy of self-determination and self-expression exploring Sor Juana's quest for artistic freedom and social equality. Click here to learn more about this performance and explore the links on the right to see video of director Henry Godinez speaking about the play and about Sor Juana's important role in history for Latinos & for women.

The Next Theatre Company, celebrating its 30th anniversary, stages relevant, boundary-pushing performances in a cozy, 142-seat space. Adam Rapp, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, loosely based The Metal Children on his personal experience as an author. The story, which is set in a small midwestern town, follows a young adult novelist who is forced to defend his writing to the conservative townspeople by showing them an 18-hour PowerPoint presentation. The play had a successful Off-Broadway during its run not on Broadway.

The Evanston History Center covers the history of the town of Evanston?but with roots going back nearly 120 years, the center almost deserves a historical society of its own. It's headquartered in the National Landmark home of Charles Gates Dawes, the Vice President under Calvin Coolidge and a descendent of a family that immigrated to the Americas in 1635. In addition to the physical building and the collection of art and artifacts, the Center also leads walking architecture tours, yoga and music performances, and ice cream socials.

  • Size: six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, 11 fireplaces, two parlors, a library, a dining room, a billiard room, and a ballroom, though it doesn't have a virtual golf center
  • Eye Catcher: the house itself: a 3.5-story chateau surrounded by topiaries and gardens that visitors can explore on docent-led tours every Thursday through Sunday
  • Permanent Mainstay: Milestones and Memories, a second-floor exhibit featuring such artifacts as a collection of rifles, a surgeon's case, and paintings from several centuries
  • Don't Miss: live events, such as a lecture series on the role of WWI in the history of the city, holiday parties and ice cream socials, and walking tours exploring architecture, the lakefront, and women's history
