A newlywed couple takes it upon themselves to fix up two romantically challenged friends: wife’s best friend, meet husband’s sexy and strange new co-worker. When an evening calculated to bring happiness takes a wrong turn, wickedly funny antics ensue in this “blind-date-gone-bad black comedy.” —ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY



Enhance your Playhouse experience by attending one of our special events!

  • NIGHTCAPS: Each week, following the Wednesday and Thursday evening performances (approx. 9:30PM) one member of the cast or creative team will be leading a fireside chat about the artistic process – a great, casual chance to connect one-on-one with the artists involved.
  • TALKBACKS: Following select performances, we will host talk-backs in our theater featuring members of our cast, creative team, and community. These slightly more traditional Q&As are ideal to hear from a broad array of artists about the creative process.
  • CONNECT ONLINE: Want to learn more about our creative process, but can’t attend events in person? Follow our blog for exclusive, behind-the-scenes content.


At Windy City Playhouse's intimate venue, you're always part of the action. But with BECKY SHAW, we're taking it to the next level.

Scenic designer Jeffrey Kmiec has conceived a uniquely immersive, 360-degree viewing experience. And it to make it as exclusive as possible, there will be only 70 of our signature club chair-style seats each night.
