A number of us have recently come to love the story of Jurgis Rudkus's plight in the stockyards of old Chicago, but didn't you think there was just a little something missing? Like song and dance?! Every Monday and Tuesday through August 30, Tantalus Theatre Group is putting on a musical interpretation of The Jungle. With a $10 donation you can witness the rat-infested Lithuanian home acted out in song. Head to Joy Blue at 3998 N. Southport, 8pm, or call 773-960-2066 for more information.
