Form a mental picture of a highly atmospheric theatre in the dungeon of a gorgeous building, a nightclub, that is very convincingly built to resemble a Victorian vision of a Medieval castle: Thick stone walls, heavy wooden beams, stained glass . . . go ahead and romanticize your imagination here--that will just about get it. The atmosphere is subdued, lit with candles, some red accents in the dark recesses, and a bit of white light washes the performance area--low, but bright enough to see well. It is slightly cool in this room in the winter . . . just cool enough to assist the shiver factor when it comes (as it does again and again).
Picture an audience of about 35 adventure-minded, enthusiastic persons genuinely interested in taking a trip into the supernatural realms of Chicago. They crowd up on the performance area--comfortably seated on three sides. Got it?
This is the dream setting for Supernatural Chicago.
I had the great pleasure of seeing Supernatural Chicago show for the first time this past Friday night. This is a walk in the misty mid region of Weir, Chicago style. Photos of ghosts vanish right out of your pocket, Capone's haunted, hunted soul rises again, an audience member channels a young spirit right before your eyes--and so very much more. Adults thrill, children recoil, and a superb time is had by all.
Neil Tobin is an engaging, entertaining performer, a superior teller of tales, and the show is wonderful. He elicits gasps and nervous laughter time after time in this extremely well-paced, extraordinarily informative and thoroughly entertaining 90-minute show.
I have spent six and eight times the ticket price on shows I have not enjoyed half so much. I therefore urge you to go if you possibly can before this show closes in February 2014. If you have spouses and children, take them. You will all be marvelously well entertained and will also learn much about that wonderful city. This show is simply pitch perfect.
When Mr. Tobin opens his new show, I will make a point of taking a special trip up from Atlanta just to see it. He is really just that good.
