There's only one thing better than seeing a Steppenwolf production, and that's seeing "two" of them for one great price. First up is "Linda Vista" from Steppenwolf ensemble member and prolific playwright Tracy Letts ("August: Osage County"). The world premiere follows Wheeler, a 50-year-old man who feels like like the best years of his life are behind him. But when he makes the move from a cot in his ex-wife's garage to his own apartment, new possibilities for love and sex arise -- complicated, painful and hilarious though they may be. A bold, incendiary riff on "Waiting for Godot", "Pass Over" focuses on two young, black men who stand around on the corner, talk smack, passing the time and hoping that maybe today will be different. Then a stranger wanders into their space with his own agenda and derails their plans. The play is a rare piece of politically charged theater by a bold new American voice, exposing the unquestionable human spirit of young men stuck in a cycle just looking for a way out. [less-]

No earthly realm is more exciting, wealthy or dangerous than a sports empire -- just ask the title character of "King Liz". A uniquely powerful sports agent, Liz Rico is a rare woman atop the towering (if teetering) pyramid of pro sports.

Enter Freddie Luna, a high school basketball superstar with a troubled past. If Liz can keep this talented yet volatile young star in line, she just might end up making not only his career, but her own as well. But at what price? See this "gripping feminist tale" ("Chicago Sun-Times") at the Windy City Playhouse in Chicago. [less-]
