The Cubs Show: Next Year Is Here . . . but Last Year The Short List (Theater) Image Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Fridays. Continues through July 28 2017

Last season, for six glorious days, Chicagoans basked in celebrating the passing of one milestone during a blissfully ignorant interval before the shit hit the fan in November. With a little bit of hindsight, a comedy troupe at Wrigleyville's Public House Theatre takes a look back at what the Cubs' World Series victory meant for the city from locals' perspectives. Most bits fall along perfunctory lines even for a low-key late-night sketch show: Theo Epstein brings his stats prowess into the bedroom; Budweiser and Old Style reps duke it out. As emcee Harry Caray, though, Dave Karasik engages in creative, funny crowd work, and a modified "Superbowl Shuffle" ventures into some welcomely unexpected territory. —Dan Jakes
