LIFE SUCKS Lookingglass Theater – 821 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, 312.337.0665
A group of old friends, ex-lovers, estranged in-laws, and lifelong enemies gather to grapple with life’s thorniest questions—and each other. What could possibly go wrong? Incurably lustful and lonely, hapless and hopeful, these seven souls collide and stumble their way towards a new understanding that LIFE SUCKS!
Q-tips say: Enjoyed “Life Sucks.” You probably all know this, but we do not get everything we want or sometimes think we need – but does that really mean “Life Sucks” or perhaps “Not”?
No one is going to love you unconditionally all the time, every moment of your life. Sometimes the “hotty” you so desire turns out to be not so “hot” after all. What, you mean you think they are not so perfect or perhaps you are not so perfect? If you are really unhappy with your life, “then change something”. Make a change to make your life “NOT SUCK.” Mrs. Q especially liked the occasional “audience participation.” No not to come on stage but from questions the actors posed to the audience. Not a play for little ones. Adults only.
A note of caution: The theater does have a few steps to get to the theater, so if you use a walker, wheelchair, or cannot handle a few steps, plan ahead by calling the theater and ask your questions.
