The Goodman's New Stages festival will feature three staged readings and two full productions of new work by five Latino playwrights, including Pulitzer winner Quiara Alegría Hughes and finalist Kristoffer Diaz. Brag about how you saw them first, before they became classics. Reservations required.
The winter edition of the Renegade Craft Fair moves indoors to the Pulaski Park field house to allow you to browse and purchase works in a toasty and climate-controlled environment. If you desire, you can also get a free trolley ride from the Damen and Division Blue Line stops.
Chicagoan Rae Amitay's band, Immortal Bird, plays Cobra Lounge tonight. Monica Kendrick calls the group's EP Akrasia "sick and greasy black metal that does an admirable job inventing the sound of a mind tearing itself apart." Crusader and Gnarhval open.
