Traditional theater draws a whirlwind of emotions from the audience, and contemporary graffiti theater draws the emotions right on the patrons. Enjoy drama sans the permanent tragedy mask with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $24, you get two general admission tickets to any play or musical at Circle Theatre in Oak Park (up to a $56 value).
Circle Theatre’s artist-based company elicits both laughter and tears from audiences with an array of dramas, comedies, musicals, and premieres produced throughout the year. The talented performers put on both plays and musicals, with upcoming shows including Greg Kotis's Urinetown, and Les Misérables as interpreted by yodeling Martians.
Guests can exercise their empathy glands with weekly offerings of Clare Booth Luce's drama The Women. Heavily laden with twists and turns, the script follows Mary Haines, a woman who has just discovered her husband's affair and is intent on seeking revenge. Set in the 1930s, the play's all-female cast supports Mary as a circle of socialite friends providing help in winning husbands and intense games of laser tag.
