Thu July 3 at 7:30 PM, The Neo-Futurarium (& then the Hopleaf...)
5153 North Ashland Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
We're coming up on the last week of Haymaker at the Neo-Futurarium, and it is definitely A Play I Want To See. The venue happens to be next to Hopleaf, which is A Bar I Want To Get Drinks At.
To quote the play's description:

Trevor examines his fascination with physical combat by staging Tears of Shanghai, an action movie he wrote when he was 13 years old. Casting himself as Russell Dakota, a grizzled maverick hiding out in 1930s Shanghai while evading the Nazis, Trevor creates a world where the line between right and wrong is clearly defined. Within the Neo-Futurist aesthetic, Haymaker is a platform to explore our urge to be a hero. Expect intricate staging and visceral choreography, combined with absurd humor and unabashed nerddom.

The show starts at 7:30 and should be over by 9:10, which means that we have plenty of time to maybe grab a beverage & be in bed in time for school/Winnemac Park the next day. An easy-peasy, beer & arty theater good time.

We can't make the show but could probably make Hopleaf.

That is quite fine! I've just bought my own tix & am super enthused. I may also be able to drag along an earnest young fellowship member or two who hasn't yet experience the joy of the neofuturists, though I put those odds at ~ 20%.

Also, if folks are less interested in the Hopleaf and more interested in getting crunk (or both?), it will be FKA Thursday at Big Chicks.

Turns out I have another commitment, but have a great time!

I am not going to make it to the show but would appreciate an update on post-show drinking plans!

Is there any post-show drinking going on?

Going To Maine and I just got here. And will be here for a drink and a bite.

I'm on my way, will be there (I'm assuming Hopleaf) in 15-20 min. Where are you sitting?
