ILLEGAL USE OF THE HANDS at American Blues Theater

Discount code MEETUP has ended.

$10.00 off discounts still available with the discount code HIKE.

American Blues Theater Presents A WORLD PREMIERE:

Written by ABT Artistic Affiliate James Still
Directed by Sandy Shinner

In a small town where buzzards feast on a dead Chevy and the local Wal-Mart hires only college graduates, three men wait out the night in the company of a high school football trophy they have rescued from obscurity. It’s a story about revenge, glory, and being a man—if only the characters could agree on what they can’t remember.
Run Time is 90 minutes with no intermission.

TICKETS: $19.00 ($10.00 OFF)
Or Call the Box Office at (773)[masked]
Use the discount code: HIKE


If there is interest, we will go out after the show for a Post Show Discussion/Socializing.

Victory Gardens is conveniently located in the heart of Lincoln Park at 2433 N. Lincoln Avenue, Chicago.

    For me, the process was better than the product. Enjoyed meeting with the group members who showed up and getting into a small and intimate theater setting with great anticipation and excitement. And then slicing and dicing the production afterwards. The performance just didn't move me that much. It took a common theme and didn't do much exceptional with it. Having said that, it's like dating. You have to kiss a lot of frogs but the gem of a production is out there and it's looking for me as much as I'm looking for it. Can't wait for the next show.

      I assume you didn't go last Friday? Call the Box Office and explain your situation: (773) 871-3000. Tell them you want to exchange the ticket to attend with the Meetup Group.

      Your right I didn't go. I will call them and see. If it's not sold out I don't see why they should care.
