BOM is truly the bomb! Barrel of Monkeys killed it last Monday. Chicago's Weird Grandma... and proud of it! If you haven't seen this show, or haven't gone in a while what are you waiting for?!
Last Monday night the kids and I were stoked to see the first in a series of annual collaborations between some of Chi-town's Best and Brightest Performing Arts Companies & Artists and our long time favs, Barrel of Monkeys!
Come on out and see just how weird and wonderful it is when the unbridled creativity of kids' stories is given a voice, costumes, and a platform! These guys are some of our favs and Monday night was a hoot. The tweens (10 & 12) both dug it, but I think I laughed even harder than they did!
Every week the audience votes on their top 2 keepers and 2 to let go. The kids and I had different opinions but we all adored The Elephants Come To My House sketch. Catch it before the pachyderms pack it up!
