Closing out the Steppenwolf Theatre Company's current season is playwright and Obie Award-winning actress Heidi Schreck's "Grand Concourse", a funny and compassionate play that speaks directly to our shared humanity.

Lastly, "Match Wits With Minka Lupino" tells of Riddle Key's receptionist, an avenging angel who's on a mission to clear the retirement community of its many predators -- from deceitful health care workers to Bible thumpers and conniving heirs.

"Traffic Jam Open Mic" combines the fun of stand-up with the instant feedback of "America's Got Talent". The rules are simple: Make the audience laugh, and the light stays green. Don't, and the light turns yellow, letting the comic know that they're in danger of getting the boot. If things don't pick up, performers get the dreaded red light, which cuts their set short and gives the next comic a chance to win back the crowd. "Traffic Jam"'s "rules of the road"-inspired system is a fun way to give audiences the power to shape their own night of comedy, while giving comics a chance to get genuine feedback on their performance. Every comic gets a minimum of three minutes on the WIP Theater stage -- the rest is up to you! [less-]
