What a Treat! Steppenwolf’s new Front Bar and “Byhalia, Mississippi”

**** Recommended **** As part of their Visiting Company initiative, Steppenwolf invited the New Colony & Definition Theatre Company to remount their winter hit, “Byhalia, Mississippi” in Steppenwolf’s new 1700 Theatre.  The entire cast has returned to “Byhalia, Mississippi”, a quirky little play with an unexpected twist.  I give it 3 ½ Spotlights.

“Byhalia, Mississippi” runs through August 21st in Steppenwolf’s new 1700 Theatre, 1700 N. Halsted, Chicago.  Running time is 2 hours, 10 minutes, with an intermission.  Performances are Thursday and Friday at 8:00 pm; Saturday at 2:30 and 8:00 pm; and Sunday at 2:30 pm.  Tickets range from $30-$35.  Paid parking is available in the Steppenwolf Garage adjacent to the theater.  FYI (312) 335-1650 or
