Unlike movie actors, theater performers aren't able to indulge in second takes, lengthy breaks, or between-the-scenes salami tossing contests.

  • For $38, you get two tickets for a preview performance on any Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday in April (a $77 value)
  • For $44, you get two tickets for a Friday performance at 8 p.m., a Saturday performance at 4 p.m. or 8 p.m., or a Sunday performance at 4 p.m. between the dates of May 1 and June 5 (an $89 value)

Back after a sold-out run at the Theatre Wit, A Twist of Water returns to the recently re-opened Mercury Theater to tell the tale of Noah (Route 66 founder and artistic director Stef Tovar), a gay, widowed teacher struggling to raise his adopted African American daughter. When his daughter decides to track down her birth mother and a younger man pings across Noah's romantic radar, his world is thrown into disarray as he struggles to hold onto the people he loves. Route 66 company member Caitlin Montanye Parrish wrote this poignant love letter to Chicago, infusing the play with both humor and profound observations on what it means to be a family. Rahm Emanuel attended a performance days after winning the mayoral race.

The Route 66 company grounds its plays in the Chicago style of forthright presentation and close connection with the audience, eschewing Brechtian distancing techniques such as hiding the stage under its foot while the audience searches for it frantically. Consult the schedule on Mercury Theater box-office page to ensure that your intended date doesn't conflict with any national fire drills or scheduled evacuations of Earth.
