Weekend Events Around Town: 12/28 - 12/30

 

Who Do We Think We Are?
The Second City has reached its 100th revue, diving into U.S. politics in their new sketch, Who Do We Think We Are? It has become clearer and clearer that politics are largely personality-driven. The cast explores the local and personal problems in politics, while also reminding the audience that even in uncertainty there is joy. Who Do We Think We Are? explores the good, the bad and the ridiculous that makes us uniquely American. Tickets are $23 - $28.
