Co-Ed Prison Sluts Recommended Member Picks The Short List (Theater)

When: Saturdays. Continues through Jan. 31 2012

The first, and still one of the best, of the Annoyance Theatre's trademark vile musical comedies. Directed by Mick Napier, this show about a ragtag group of prisoners in a dysfunctional (and, oddly, co-ed) prison seemed bracingly fresh and original when it opened in 1988. Faith Soloway's songs are at once amazing parodies and solid compositions in their own right. Unsurprisingly, the first production became a late-night hit and ran for 12 years, a record for a musical in Chicago. Now the Annoyance folks have revived what they call their "flagship show." (JHe)
