CHICAGO — A new play's final performance and "Old Jews Telling Jokes" Tuesday night in Lincoln Park.
'Old Jews Telling Jokes'
The Royal George Theatre, 1641 N. Halsted St., presents "Old Jews Telling Jokes," a showcase of five actors in a revue that pays tribute to and reinvents classic jokes of the past and present, all inspired by the "Old Jews Telling Jokes" website.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Call 312-988-9000 for reservations.
What the Tour Guide Didn't Tell You
"The Second City" does The Second City in the hometown revue "What the Tour Guide Didn't Tell You: A Chicago Review," which pulls from 52 years of classic scenes and songs that lovingly make fun of the city we call home.
The 1-1/2-hour show (with intermission) is presented at 8 p.m. every Tuesday as well as 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays at UP Comedy Club, 230 W. North Ave.
The Wheel Kicks Off
Catch one of the final five performances of "The Wheel," a new play about "what happens to hope and human nature in times of war." The play takes place on a 19th century Spanish farm and has been dubbed "thoroughly fascinating, gutsy" by the Chicago Tribune.
Nov. 10 is the final showing, so catch "The Wheel" at the Steppenwolf Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted Ave., before the last performance of the year.
