**** Highly Recommended **** “The Compass” absolutely blew me away! It is unique and one of the most creative plays I’ve ever seen. It’s just too bad there are so few public performances – and limited seating at those. If I had any influence with Steppenwolf at all, I’d recommend they extend “The Compass” which I give 4 BIG Spotlights.
“The Compass” runs through March 12th in the Downstairs Theatre at Steppenwolf Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted, Chicago. Running time is 90 minutes, no intermission. Public performances are Fridays, March 4th and 11th at 7:30 pm; Saturday, March 5th at 1:30 and 3:00 pm; and Saturday, March 12th at 3:00 pm. Tickets are $20; $15 with a student I.D. Paid parking is available in the adjacent Steppenwolf Garage. FYI (312) 335-1650 or www.steppenwolf.org.
