BLIZZARD ’67

Yes, it’s cold out. But things could be worse: The storm of the century might turn you into an antisocial monster, as it does the four businessmen in Jon Steinhagen’s dark comedy, premiering at Chicago Dramatists. While a performance is scheduled for January 26, the 45th anniversary of Chicago’s largest recorded snowfall, we recommend getting tickets for another night. Why tempt fate?

DETAILS:

1/5–2/12 Ah, winter, when even the gentlest souls might take a shovel to the skulls of those who trespass on their laboriously excavated parking spaces. Is the theatre the only place we can see the storm-induced devolution of otherwise nice people to Lord of the Flies–like monsters? Maybe not, but it’s warmer inside. Previews 1/5–7, 12; $20. Regular run $15–$32. Chicago Dramatists, 1105 W Chicago. chicagodramatists.org.
