A Steady Rain Member Picks The Short List (Theater) Recommended Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Sept. 2 2012

Since its premiere at Chicago Dramatists in 2007, Keith Huff's punch-to-the-gut cop drama has received an extended run at Royal George Theatre and a Broadway production starring Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman. Now it's being remounted with the original cast in its original home. So if you missed it the first time around, by god, don't miss it again. When years of ethical compromises and derelictions of duty culminate in a horrific, preventable tragedy, officers Joey and Denny are left to sort out the mess they've made. Director Russ Tutterow captures the gravity of sins that can't be expunged; Randy Steinmeyer is a whirlwind as Denny, an unbridled and unrepentantly crooked cop whose ties to his best friend and partner have destroyed any hope he had of escaping his situation unscathed. —Dan Jakes
