** Somewhat Recommended ** I’ve only been to City Lit Theater a couple of times, but that was enough to raise my expectations to the highest level, so I was really looking forward to seeing Paul Edwards’ new adaptation of “The Picture of Dorian Gray”.

City Lit Theater’s production of “The Picture of Dorian Gray” runs through April 15th inside the Edgewater Presbyterian Church, 1020 W. Bryn Mawr Avenue, Chicago. Street parking is difficult to find in this neighborhood. Valet parking ($10) is available (except on Sundays) at Francesca’s Bryn Mawr (diagonally across the street).

Running time is 2 hours, 10 minutes, with an intermission. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3:00 pm. Tickets range from $27-$32. FYI (773) 293-3682 or
