The Twink on the Fire Escape: A Walking Tour Closing (Theater and Galleries) New Review (Theater and Comedy) Recommended The Short List (Theater) Image

When: Sundays. Continues through April 2 2017

Storyteller Zach Zimmerman wrote this walking tour/comedy set as a love letter to Boystown, his home during his formative years as a newly out twentysomething. Under the gaze of passersby and onlookers in alleys and in bars, he escorts a handful-size audience around Lakeview to destinations that played a key role in a raucous date-night vignette, plying them along the way with Ann Sather cinnamon rolls, pickle-back shots, and conversation about the parameters of what qualifies a "twunk." It's a heartfelt, authentically Chicago stand-up comedy achievement as brave and bizarre as anything by Maria Bamford or Billy Eichner. When Zimmerman moves to New York soon, he'll be among world-class comics who bring innovation to the form. He should feel right at home. —Dan Jakes
