A Series of Random Closing (Theater and Galleries) Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through Nov. 28 2015

Chicago comedy veterans Antoine McKay and Angie McMahon bring us this light-on-its-feet sketch revue that skips the usual offensive situations because it (correctly!) assumes that the human condition is offensive enough. The modestly, beautifully drawn characters evoke a swarm of puzzled people dealing with not-so-delicate moral complications, like a group of employees trying to determine what sorts of racist or racy jokes they can get away with at work. The only concentrated doses of randomness come from a recurring gag about auditions for a Star Wars play based on a wacky summary by a woman who hasn't seen the movies. Mishu Hilmy’s would-be Obi-Wan, his face contorted into Edvard Munch’s “The Scream,” is something I happily cannot unsee. —Jena Cutie
