Here is the synopsis for “Hugo”:

While on a daring adventure to find his family, Hugo Cabret discovers a robot in the walls of a Paris train station that transports him to a world of wonder, mystery and magic.

There, he and an eccentric girl piece together the mystery surrounding his missing family. They use the robot, a heart-shaped lock and the comical characters they meet along the way as clues and the road map back to where he belongs.

Based on Brian Selznick’s award-winning and imaginative New York Times bestseller “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” this magical tale is Academy Award-winner Martin Scorsese’s first film shot in 3D.

  • It's NOT ALL About You John Michael

    CHICAGO – John Michael epitomizes the art of the monologue.

Click here for details, including ticket information.

    CHICAGO – Connecting to the theater collective Nothing Without a Company means a couple of things.

The play runs through March 17th, 2019. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
