Kind of a lackluster week of reviews at TOC—we wrote up six shows, and none of them scored above three stars (though I should note that John Beer was "on the cusp" of recommending Raven's Hedda Gabler).
Luckily, though, there are lots of good shows already running, and I have a backlog of shows I'm hoping to catch up with in the next few weeks, including Theo Ubique's Evita, Theatre Seven's Diversey Harbor, ATC's Hedwig and The Overwhelming at Next, to name a few, and more opening shortly about which I hear good things (like The Lieutenant of Inishmore, which I'm catching tomorrow night at Northlight, and the Goodman's Rock ’n’ Roll, opening next week).
Since I'm too swamped to write much of substance here at the moment, I thought I'd offer up a list of the current shows I have seen and can personally recommend. Links to full info at TOC so I don't have to duplicate it here.
