The New Colony's production of "Kate and Sam are Not Breaking Up" explores our culture's obsession with celebrity, through the experiences of two actors whose "Tween-fantasy franchise of movies is coming to a close."

There's a kidnapping and couples therapy sparked by an impending break-up, in a script written by Joel Kim Booster.

The show opens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7 and runs at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays to Saturdays through Dec 14 inside the Collaboraction Theatre, 1579 N. Milwaukee Ave., Suite 300.

Tickets can be bought online and are $20, $10 for students and seniors.
