**** Recommended **** Love, loyalty and friendship are taxed to the max in Steppenwolf’s new production, “Between Riverside and Crazy”. Don’t let the language put you off, this play is very, very good. I’m still not sure if I loved it or hated it, which guaranteed interesting conversation on the way home. I give “Between Riverside and Crazy” 4 Spotlights.
“Between Riverside and Crazy” runs through August 21st in Steppenwolf’s Downstairs Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted, Chicago. Running time is 2 hours with an intermission. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday at 7:30 pm with matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 3:00. Special Wednesday matinees on August 3rd, 10th & 17th, only.
