Chi, IL LIVE Shows On Our Radar:
The Bardy Bunch, Mercury Theater
The Bardy Bunch: The War of the Families Partridge and Brady, a musical parody by Stephen Garvey that gained cult status during its Off-Broadway run in 2014, is now playing a limited engagement in Chicago at the Mercury Theater, 3745 N. Southport Avenue. It is 1974 and we join the Bradys and Patridges just after the ABC Network ceased airing their chronicles. It was a summer when these beloved TV families, no longer under America's watchful eye, met on a collision course in a blood-soaked, vengeance-fueled, lust-filled crossover episode of Shakespearean proportions. For more information, visit TheBardyBunch.com.
WIN 2 Tickets to The Bardy Bunch (up to $116 value) ENTER HEREthrough midnight Wednesday 8/12 *Valid for any shows through Oct 31st
