Today's side deal scores adventurous theater-goers a ticket to the Sideshow Theatre Company's production of Medea With Child at La Costa Theatre. With the exception of opening night, this Groupon can be used on any of the play's regular performances, which fall between Friday, March 19, and Sunday, April 25, 2010. Call or email the box office to reserve your show (view show schedule here), subject to availability.

Written by Pulitzer Prize nominee Janet Burroway and based on Euripides's classic Greek revenge tragedy, Medea With Child recounts the tale of Medea unleashing her epic fury on her unfaithful husband. As her vengeance rocks both her family and her country, it becomes less and less certain that any of the characters can escape their fates. As staged by the Sideshow Theatre Company, the experience is like watching a fever-dream version of the worst break-up you've ever had.

Sideshow Theatre Company has been a nonprofit since its founding in 2007, which keeps it focused on its primary mission: to mine the collective unconscious of the modern world by telling familiar stories using unorthodox methods—sparking conversations with gloriously strange stagings. Both the troupe and the play will supply you with far more interesting first-date conversation fodder than a photo collection of cute kittens trapped in snow globes.

Reviews

The Daily Herald, the Windy City Times, and Edge have sung the praises of Sideshow Theatre Company's past shows:

Two Yelpers give the theater company a near-perfect 4.5 stars:

  • The opening sequence was very intriguing and nicely staged. I loved the use of music and lighting in the sequence...All the actors were great and I loved the quick costume/hair changes. – Melanie V.
