The Theatre Building Chicago, at 1227 W. Belmont, presents An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein, focusing on the author's short plays. I still pick up my vintage Silversteins and admire the rhymes and line drawings - and also the pages wherein someone lovingly colored the Meehoo and the Exactlywatt. This show, however, is for a slightly older audience. The more mature Shel can be seen through December 18th.
