Another year, another 12 months of great theater! 2013 blessed the Windy City with inspired new works and riveting revivals from a wide range of companies – the largest equity houses to the smallest of Chicago’s storefronts. Taking into account the 600+ productions that we reviewed in 2013, here are our picks for the best of the best. Bravo!! (note: for the 3rd year in a row, we’re honored to have the national website Huffington Post use our choices for their Top 10 Chicago productions!)
The only thing cuter than kindergartners singing in a holiday concert is this video of five-year-old Claire Koch going into full ASL-mode so that her hearing-impaired parents can fully enjoy her class’s holiday show. (I especially love the “Santa is his Name-O”) With that expressive face, she’s made for the stage – what a ham!
