Bill T. Jones
Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

Today's your final chance to see a performance of Story/Time, Bill T. Jones's autobiographical piece randomly arranged into 70 one-minute pieces. Jena Cutie calls the dancers "strong, articulate, and edgy in their movements." Performances at the Dance Center of Columbia College.

Simon Stephens's violent drama Motortown, about a British soldier home from a tour in Basra, can be hard to sit through, writes Keith Griffith: "But those for those who can stomach it, Stephens's play . . . raises powerful questions about the crises of masculinity and the horrors of war."

Not into James Franco? Neither is Write Club Chicago founder Ian Belknap. He'll explain why in his solo show Bring Me the Head of James Franco, That I May Prepare a Savory Goulash in the Narrow and Misshapen Pot of His Skull. See it at Den Theatre.
