Life is good for theater lovers on the Far North Side. In addition to all those Rogers Park productions that got nominated for Jeff Awards, two acclaimed shows are getting extended by popular demand:
The Raven Theatre's revival of Henrik Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler" was going to close next month but is pushing through July 25. Shows are Thursdays (through June 27), Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Tickets are $25 at the theater, 6157 N. Clark, or (773) 338-2177. Hedy Weiss loved it.
And once again the Theo Ubique Theatre Co. has extended its highly acclaimed revival of “Evita,” with a final performance set for June 27. This vest-pocket-size production of the classic Andrew Lloyd Webber musical has played to sold-out shows for two months at the No Exit Cafe, 6970 N. Glenwood in Rogers Park. A pre-show dinner of Argentine cuisine is available beginning an hour before the show for additional cost. For tickets ($30), phone (773) 347-1109.
Here's to strong, historical women!
