This week's cover story | The Book of Mormon Chicago premiere
Here's a sneak peek at what's coming up in this week's Time Out Chicago, on newsstands tomorrow:
- Hoping to see The Book of Mormon before, say, Valentine's Day? Not even the ghost of Joseph Smith can help you now, I'm afraid. Tickets are sold out into March, but a 12-week extension into June (and possibly longer) means you might have a chance of seeing it this spring. In the meantime, check out this conversation Kris Vire had with South Park and Mormon creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and meet the show's Chicago cast.
- Online only content: What does it take to operate an eight-foot-tall, 120-pound horse puppet? The puppeteers of War Horse, opening Dec 18, explain.
- Chicago's improv and sketch comedy scene is all about the group mentality. So what happens when people break off to do solo sketch shows in hopes of getting nabbed for SNL?
