She was just a small-town girl, living in a lonely world — until arriving on the Sunset Strip circa 1987, where she meets a big-city boy. Nominated for five 2009 Tony Awards including Best Musical and called “insanely fun” by Time Out New York, the Broadway hit Rock of Ages follows two teens with big dreams and even bigger hair as they face speed bumps on the road to love, set to the music of Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and more. This hilarious, high-energy production includes such classic ’80s hits as “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “We Built This City,” “The Final Countdown,” “Wanted Dead or Alive,” “Here I Go Again,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling” and “I Want to Know What Love Is.” You won’t want to miss this awesomely fun show about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on.
Broadway’s Into the Woods combines a Tony-winning score by Stephen Sondheim with the iconic stories of Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Jack (the giant killer) — cleverly turning the fairy tale world on its head to deliver a deeper message about the nature of greed and whether “happily ever after” is even possible. Unable to bear children, a baker and his wife are lured into completing a number of tasks by a witch who promises to grant their wish, sending them on an eventful journey where they encounter several familiar characters. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, the original Broadway run won critical praise and numerous awards, including a trio of Tonys. The cast recording, which includes “Children Will Listen,” “Giants in the Sky” and “No One Is Alone,” took home a Grammy, and a movie is now in production for a Christmas 2014 release with an all-star cast including Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick and more.
It’s alive! Mel Brooks reunited with the creative team behind The Producers for this comedic re-imagining of the Frankenstein story that became a Broadway hit. The musical follows young Dr. Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronkensteen”) as he tries to complete his grandfather’s work and bring a corpse to life. He is aided by the hunchbacked, bulging-eyed Igor, his beautiful lab assistant, Inga, and the frightfully eccentric housekeeper, Frau Blucher. Featuring a live orchestra, an energetic cast and hilarious, catchy tunes like “Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” Drury Lane Theatre’s production of Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven to be a horrifically good time.
Two teams trying to overcome injuries to make a playoff push collide when the Minnesota Timberwolves pay a visit to the United Center to take on the Chicago Bulls. The Timberwolves have one of the NBA’s top players in Kevin Love, an offensive threat and a beast on the glass, and one of the league’s most exciting playmakers in guard Ricky Rubio. The Bulls continue to play hard-nosed defense in the absence of superstar Derrick Rose, with Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer anchoring Chicago’s frontline, and Jimmy Butler giving the team some scoring punch.
