"City of Dreadful Night" is a Jeff-recommended dramatic production that pays homage to film noir movies from the 1940s and follows a paranoid small-time New York crook who suspects his girlfriend of cheating on him and enlists a shell-shocked war veteran friend to start tailing her. Tickets are $25 ($15 for industry folks). Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays to Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays, from Feb. 12 to March 16, at The Den Theatre, 1333 N. Milwaukee Ave. Phone: 773-398-7028.
