The line up for Thursday, May 10th, 2018, the final day of the CCFF

THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS (NOON) When three identical triplets, separated at birth, find each other in 1980 (at age 19), and it became a sensational news story. But the reunion also unlocks some secrets that go beyond their own lives, and actually could transform the understanding of human nature itself. To purchase tickets, click here.

THE GUILTY (2p) This entry from Denmark involves a police offer, demoted to desk work, who gets involved in a kidnapping when it’s called to his dispatch. Confined to the station, he has to use all of his instincts – and fight his demons – to infiltrate the case. To purchase tickets, click here.

SUPPORT THE GIRLS (4p). A SXSW favorite, about a Den Motherish general manager (Regina Hall) at “Double Whammies,” a sports bar of a particular genre (“with curves”). Despite her efforts, the reality of such a venue controls the course of a long, strange day. To purchase tickets, click here.

ABDUCTED IN PLAIN SIGHT (6p) Special Appearance by director Skye Borgman. A “true crime” documentary about a Idaho family whose daughter is kidnapped by a neighbor. Twice. In the end, it points back toward the family. To purchase tickets, click here.

EIGHTH GRADE (8:30p) Special Appearance by director Bo Burnham. It’s been a disastrous eighth grade year for 13-year-old Kayla, but she must endure the last week before heading to high school. SOLD OUT, but rush tickets could be available at the Music Box Theatre box office.

The 6th Chicago Critics Film Festival takes place through Thursday, May 10th, 2018, at the Music Box Theatre, 3733 North Southport, Chicago. For the CCFF website, click here.

  • Jesus Christ Superstar, Lyric Opera

    CHICAGO – As a wee lad, I would often go into my parent’s record collection. One day, out of the blue, that brown double album with the gold embossed angels appeared, like a gift from the divine. “Jesus Christ Superstar” began as a record album “rock opera” in 1970, evolved to a Broadway show and film, and then was interpreted through a myriad of stage revivals over the years. The latest is an exciting piece of stagecraft at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. The show has a various evening/matinee run through May 20th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Cornerstone, Nothing Without a Company

    CHICAGO – We all need some help. The stage play group Nothing Without a Company realizes that, and has collaborated with the organization “Cornerstone” to provide that assistance. Cornerstone is a seminar and a happening in downtown Chicago, facilitated by “experts” to generate your potential. The presentation has a Thursday-Sunday run at Michigan Avenue’s Artspace 8 through May 6th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
