Fuck You, I Love You, Bye: The Rahm Emanuel Story Closing (Theater and Galleries) Member Picks Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Saturdays. Continues through Nov. 26 2011

Nearly every joke in the first few scenes of Annoyance Theatre's new comedy landed with an artless clunk on opening night. Maybe the cast was rattled, having lost director Paul Turner to a family emergency a week before opening. But once they settled down and found the rhythms in Marc Warzecha and Andy Cobb's biting, imaginative satire, things took off. The hour-long show is set in 2081, when Chicago rules the world thanks to a certain bloodthirsty, erratic, foul-mouthed mayor. Recently deceased, Rahm is presented as an interactive hologram in a Museum of Science and Industry exhibit, reliving his greatest moments--which include adding "Go fuck yourself" to the city seal. It's funny, filthy, politically savvy, and gleefully anti-establishment. --Justin Hayford
