*** Recommended *** If you’re going to see Walkabout Theater Company’s “Tall Girl and the Lightning Parade”, you’ll want to bring a blanket or a lawn chair and some bug spray. The family friendly production, described as an interactive, outdoor parade and performance spectacle, is a part of Chicago Park District’s “Night Out in the Parks” series. Since most of the members of the “Tall Girl” cast have mastered the art of stilt-walking, there was a circus-like feel to the evening. Your kids will really enjoy the performance, adults maybe not so much. I give it 3 Spotlights.
Walkabout Theater Company’s “Tall Girl and the Lightning Parade” will have four more performances: August 23rd and 24th at Walsh Playground Park, 1722 N. Ashland Ave. (with a parade on the 606); August 26th and 27th at La Villita Park, 2800 S. Sacramento Blvd. All performances which begin at 7:00 pm, run roughly 75 minutes (excluding parade). Tickets are free, no reservation required. FYI www.walkabouttheater.org/tall-girl.
