BEAU JEST: A COMEDY
James Sherman’s warmhearted comedy Beau Jest tells the story of Sarah Goldman, who doesn’t think her traditional Jewish parents will respond favorably to her boyfriend, a gentile guy named Chris Cringle. So what’s a nice girl to do but create a fictional Jewish doctor as her imaginary beau and hire a male escort to play him in front of the family? The problem is, her charade is a little too successful and Sarah starts falling for the fake! This sweet romantic comedy was an Off-Broadway success and also spawned a 2008 movie version starring Lainie Kazan. As always, enjoy BYOB (Bring your own bottle) and free cookies from Oil Lamp Theater.
Location: Oil Lamp Theater, 1723 Glenview Road, Glenview

HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH
Meet Hedwig Schmidt, an East German rock and roll goddess whose botched sex change operation left her with just “an angry inch.” Now, she and her band are out to right many wrongs. This landmark 1998 musical won the Tony Award for Best Revival in 2016 and you can see it in the sort of cabaret setting where it began. Part of the complete Theo Ubique experience includes dinner, served by the actors before the show, with dessert during intermission! For an additional $25, order the show with three-course dinner in one easy step. Dinner reservations accepted at the time of ticket order.
Location: Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre , 721 Howard Street, Evanston
