FAQ / Review Calendar

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Want to take another shot at helping us at to understand your rating system?
    • It's slightly more complicated than "thumbs up or down," but only slightly. RED LIGHT means we don't recommend the play. GREEN LIGHT means we do, enthusiastically. YELLOW LIGHT means it may be recommended (though with less vigor) or not; the review will explain; it denotes a play that is neither superb nor really weak.
  • When will you guys have your own complete lists of current and upcoming shows?
    • This one is harder. We have tried. Honestly. It just isn't easy to maintain when we don't know enough about html to get it to auto-update. We continue to try, and maybe someday we will succeed. 
  • Why should I read your reviews instead of others?
    • Don't. Read them in addition to others. I always think it's a good idea to find a few good reviewers you can trust and read what they have to say. I hope we can be that for you.
  • Why do out of town reviews? Isn’t this a CHICAGO site?
    • Why, yes it is. Are you a Chicagoan? Do you ever travel? We do out of town reviews for three reasons:
      • Because Chicagoans travel
      • Because there is great theatre everywhere
      • Because this blog can be read anywhere
  • Are you just using this page to explain stuff you don't have anywhere else to explain?
    • Isn't that what an FAQ page is for?
  • What plays are you seeing this month?
  1. More will be added as they are scheduled.
