  • The Hypocrites
    Founded in 1997 by inventive Chicago artist Sean Graney, The Hypocrites curates unorthodox theatrical endeavors with inimitable panache and an underlying emotional vulnerability. Praised by the Chicago Sun-Times for its propensity to “never do things the expected way,” The Hypocrites have applied its unconventional approach to classic texts such as The Threepenny Opera, Frankenstein, and Kafka's The Trial. Throughout the years, these productions have earned the company a trophy case of Joseph Jefferson citations, as well as an After Dark Award and a letter of recommendation from Shakespeare’s great-great-great-great grandfather.

  • Chicago Sinfonietta
    Chicago Sinfonietta was already markedly different from its counterparts when it played its first notes in 1987. Its founder and conductor Paul Freeman wanted to create a symphony that actually reflected the community in which it existed. The ensemble he formed brought together musicians from diverse racial and cultural backgrounds, who interpreted both classical pieces and forgotten compositions from composers of color. His concept proved successful—the symphony toured Europe, played the Kennedy Center twice, and produced 14 albums, all while tunefully demonstrating the universality of music. Today, Chicago Sinfonietta continues to perform unique programs, and supports music education and professional development opportunities for members of underrepresented communities. Freeman retired from his post at the end of the 2011 season, passing the reins new music director Mei-Ann Chen, but his legacy lives on in the music of performers he helped get started, including classical-music legend Yo-Yo Ma.

  • The Redhead Piano Bar
    The Redhead Piano Bar serves tasty American-style cuisine. If you're avoiding fat or gluten, you can still eat well at The Redhead Piano Bar, which offers a number of low-fat and gluten-free choices. Beer, wine, and more are also available from The Redhead Piano Bar's extensive drink list. With its spacious interior, The Redhead Piano Bar is a great choice for big groups and celebrations. For an eclectic twist on traditional dining, live music is often featured at The Redhead Piano Bar as well. The restaurant's noise level can be somewhat straining on the vocal cords, so intimate get-togethers may be best enjoyed elsewhere. If you're heading to the restaurant on a Friday or Saturday, be prepared for crowds (sorry, no reservations accepted). If you need to feed a big crowd, The Redhead Piano Bar also offers catering services for parties and get-togethers. Street parking is conveniently available around the restaurant, as well as valet service. Prices are downright affordable at The Redhead Piano Bar, with most items well under the $15 mark.

  • Beverly Arts Center
    Art. Education. Community. Non-Profit. These four words succinctly sum up the mission of Beverly Art Center, a cultural hub in the historic Beverly Hills, Morgan Park neighborhood. The heart of the member-supported center is the 400-seat Main Stage theater, which hosts plays, dance recitals, and concerts. But the venue is equally dedicated to education, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in ceramics and film classes at the School of the Arts or attend literary events with actual authors instead of just their dust jacket photos. A spacious art gallery hosts rotating exhibitions of contemporary works by both national and regional artists.

  • Riviera Theatre
    The Riviera Theatre has been a major part of Chicago since 1917. In that year, the Riviera was built – in what is now the Uptown theater district – as a movie theater. In 1986, the Riviera was converted into a nightclub and later morphed into what is now Chicago’s most well-known venue for concerts and special events. A brief look at their history and you’ll see that the Riviera has played host to the world’s most famous performers and has no intention of letting that reputation slide. The Riviera Theatre is also available for special-event rentals such as rock concerts, corporate parties, proms, and much more. Be sure to visit their website to find out about upcoming concerts, events, and other activities. Make the Riviera Theatre your place to go for all things entertainment related.
