The Vagina Monologues weaves together the impassioned and often funny tales of women from around the world who have struggled with, triumphed over, and embraced womanhood. Though it is not recommended for children or young teens, the show has proven extremely popular among its core demographic, ultimate Frisbee teams on squad-bonding excursions.
Flanagan's Wake has been reducing Chicago to guffaws for the past 13 years with its presentation of a boisterous, interactive Irish wake. Just like a real wake, viewers are encouraged to make up stories about the deceased or simply sit back and enjoy the postmortem songs and customs that have been observed by the Irish since death was invented nearly 200 years ago.
