What food and drink exactly is included in my ticket?
Every guest of A RECIPE FOR DISASTER will be offered six “bites,” one cocktail sampling, and two wine pairings.

Are there non-alcoholic cocktails available during the show?
Absolutely! If you’d like to be served non-alcoholic versions of our cocktails during the show, please just let our House Manager know at check-in.

Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?
The tasting menu can be made vegan on request. We cannot guarantee that we can meet other dietary restrictions, but give our box office a ring at 773.891.8985, or email us: boxoffice@windycityplayhouse.com, and we’ll try to figure something out!

Should I plan to eat pre or post-show?
In terms of quantity, it is similar to the amount of food you might have at a cocktail party. You’ll want to come hungry so you can fully enjoy the experience, but for those looking to book a post-show bite, we’re happy to recommend one of our preferred dining partners!


What is the duration of the show?
The show runs approximately 90 minutes.

Is there an intermission?
No; the show will be performed as a single act. However, if you at any point need to leave the theater (to use the restroom, for example) you are welcome to do so.

Is the show family-friendly?
We prefer to let each family decide what content is appropriate for them. However, if we had to rate the show, we would say it’s PG-13, due to some mature themes including sexual content and cursing.

What is seating like for this show?
Guests will be able to move about the space at their own leisure. But there will also be ample tables to sit at, or high-tops to just lean against / put down a glass.

Is the show handicap accessible?
Yes! All entrances and exits throughout the venue are accessible to wheelchairs, walkers, and mobility assisting devices. We also have a great deal of flexibility to accommodate our guests’ needs. We highly recommend any patron with related questions contact our friendly box office team for more specifics so that we can provide you the best evening of entertainment possible! Give us a ring at: 773.891.8985, or email us at: boxoffice@windycityplayhouse.com.

What are your COVID-19 safety guidelines?
All guests will be asked for proof of vaccination at the door. Patrons must show proof of full vaccination at least 14 days prior to the performance (full vaccination is considered 1 dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or 2 doses of either Pzfizer or Moderna). Alternatively, patrons may present a negative PCR from within 48 hours of the performance. As of March 23, masks will be optional. For questions, please email us at: boxoffice@windycityplayhouse.com or call 773.891.8985. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our artists, staff, and fellow audience members safe!
