Motion pictures have yet to capture the intimacy of the stage, similar to how the Indy 500 fails to deliver the thrills of a soapbox derby. Revel in up-close entertainment with today's GrouponLive deal to see Clutter: The True Story of the Collyer Brothers Who Never Threw Anything Out, presented by MadKap Productions at the Greenhouse Theater in Lincoln Park. For $21, you get one ticket for general-admission seating to the play and postshow talkback on Thursday, February 2, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $42.50 value, including ticketing fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.

A mystery set in a Fifth Avenue mansion in 1947 New York, Clutter chronicles the lives and the deaths of Homer and Langley Collyer, an eccentric pair of old-money aristocrats who hoarded 130 tons of books, furniture, newspapers, and other assorted junk in their Harlem brownstone. In a portrayal written by playwright Mark Saltzman, Andrew J. Pond and Edward Kuffert depict the idiosyncratic siblings who abandoned careers in law and music as their minds sank further into compulsion. Spectators watch as the brothers carve passageways and install tollbooths in their tangle of textbooks, instruments, clothing, and paper. Playing foils to the disheveled duo, two meticulous police detectives investigate Homer's death while searching for the missing Langley. The show provokes questions on Americans' hunger for consumption, even prompting self-reflection from Sun-Times theater critic Hedy Weiss and program notes penned by Oscar the Grouch.

Before the performance, complimentary refreshments welcome guests into the theater, and those intrigued with the psychosis of the Collyers can stay for a postshow talkback with clinical psychologist Dr. Scott Kaplan and actor Michael Kostroff. Kostroff starred in a recent New York reading of Clutter and spent five seasons playing Maurice Levy on HBO's The Wire, which depicted Baltimore's seedy network of underground tightrope walkers.
