Vote Gorilla Tango for IndieWire's Project of the Month by 7/6 #theatre review


ChiIL Live Shows had a chance to check out Superboobs:   A Superhero Burlesque Adventure and also Attend The Tale of Danny Tanner:  A Full House Musical.    

Their Burlesque is playful, grrrl powered fun for couples or a night out.   All body types are represented, not just sleek, airbrushed Barbie types.   Most of all, the actors look like they're having a great time, thoroughly enjoying their campy parodies.   Seeing a Gorilla Tango Burlesque show is kinda like spying on a girly slumber party or 21+ kids playing R rated charades with a costume bin.

There's even a lobby bar!    Gorilla Tango is not just hooters.....their shows are a hoot....clever, smart, sexy spoofs.    Come check 'em out.    Highly recommended adult fun.

We're super stoked  Attend The Tale of Danny Tanner:  A Full House Musical has been extended into July.  Check the link for show dates and times.  This show was horribly wrong in ALL the right ways.   I haven't laughed this hard in ages.  The audience was on the floor laughing from the time the opening number echoed forth.  The actors' parodies were so funny I can't believe the cast actually made it through the whole show without cracking, though I saw a few tell tale facial twitches.   Attend the tale....before it's too late.   If you drove, you might want to forgo the lobby bar on this one...lest someone in the audience gets any ideas!   There's always the blue line el--Western stop a short walk away.    However you get there, go already.


In this darkly comedic musical, the true life of Danny Tanner and is family is exposed; promises will be broken, sinister paths explored, lives may be lost, and yes, songs will be sung. Whether you're a member of the Full House fan club or scoff in a superior fashion when you hear someone utter "Cut It Out"; you will find both a touch of nostalgia and an illuminating light shining brightly on the Tanners' most clandestine realities. Come see the Tanners as you've never seen them before. Attend the Tale.

"An hour of gleefully over-the-top songs about murder and pinky swears..."
Centerstage Chicago

"Cheerfully morbid musical goof!"
Chicago Reader

"An interesting, dark twist on the "Full House" we all know and love. The choreography is stylistic and interesting, the actors believable and the harmonies pretty perfect."
