Chicago Tap Theatre New Review (Theater and Comedy) The Short List (Theater) Recommended

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through March 28 2010

Choreographer Mark Yonally owns the narrative tap-dance show. No character ever says a word in LoveTaps, CTT’s 90-minute comedy about online dating, but body language and expressive tapping make the stories completely clear. And there's a wrinkle: audiences vote to decide which couples will hook up in act two, which makes for a lot of vehement intermission-time discussion about who's compatible and why. Some candidates--a pill-popping shrink, a homicidal doorman, a wannabe celeb--are fun to watch but scary dating material; the rest brought out my inner matchmaker. Andrew Edwards, who created the show with Yonally, also composed and recorded the pop score, tailoring the clever lyrics--too often drowned out by thundering cleats--to scenes and characters. --Laura Molzahn

Price: $18-$30
