The Second City is Chicago’s gift to the world. Its improvisational skits are as funny as it gets. Thanks to ESPN, the ballplayers from Jackie Robinson West won the hearts of the nation as they battled and won in last summer’s Little League Championship. Blair Thomas & Company is an internationally acclaimed puppet theater. Chicago Tribune columnist Eric Zorn’s commentaries and insights on human nature are thought provoking and entertaining. Musical guests are to be announced.
