Open Run

Now in its eighth year in Chicago, the smash-hit musical inspired by the famed recording session that brought together rock 'n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for one night only is still drawing in audiences. As of 2013, it is Chicago's longest running show! Be prepared to rock out to classics from the Quartet such as "Blue Suede Shoes", "Fever," "That's All Right," "Sixteen Tons," "Great Balls of Fire," "Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues," and "Hound Dog"!

Emerald City Theatre: Elephant and Piggie

Until May 30, 2015

Mo Willem's beloved children's book characters make their Chicago stage debut in Emerald City Theatre's 'Elephant and Piggie's We are in a Play'. Gerald the Elephant is the cautious, nervous type, while the rambunctious Piggie knows no fear and is purely driven by fun. It seems an unlikely pairing, but as they say opposites attract.
