Going to see a play can be a hit or miss affair, but ShawChicago has always offered a consistently splendid theater experience. In spite of the fact that the performances we've seen have been staged readings rather than fully realized productions, the performers' talent and skill are so strong that we're totally absorbed.

Of course, the material--plays by George Bernard Shaw--makes a contribution as well.

Still, material isn't all. Yesterday we went to a production of Moliere's The Miser--fully staged, but so poorly executed that we left after the first act. Experiences like that always make me doubt my affection for theater.

This afternoon that affection was renewed. A marvelous performance of You Never Can Tell. These actors are just phenomenal.
