Theater Oobleck
Theater Oobleck is an artistic collective dedicated to producing and performing original works of theater for the benefit of, and at low or no cost to, the members of the Chicago community and beyond. All our works are created and developed by members of the Oobleck ensemble, working in concert to create a collaborative vision without an overseeing director. We have produced about seventy world-premiere productions over the past twenty-seven years, as well as eighteen remounts of earlier productions.
Day Two: The Whole Enchilada
Baudelaire goes DURATIONAL when we mount an all-day event presenting every episode from the seven years of Baudelaire In A Box shows, in their original order (more or less), featuring the original performers (mostly).

It includes music written, performed, curated, and arranged by musicians and composers from Chicago and beyond, including Bobby Conn, Julie Pomerleau, Azita, Angela James, Jim Becker, Amy Warren, Lea Tshilds, Ronnie Kuller, Kate Douglas, Jeff Dorchen, Emmy Bean, T-Roy Martin, Chris Schoen, Curtis Eller, Jason Kutchma, New Town Drunks, Lizbeth Román, Katira María, Javier Carballido, Maximilliano Rivas, Andrea Cruz, Cheryl Rivera, and many more!

This all-day, meals-included durational extravaganza is available for only $50!
Theater Oobleck is now also offering half day passes!

11:00 am to 5:00 pm $30 - includes lunch

5:00 to 11:00 pm (or end of show) $30 - includes dinner

We start in the bar at 11AM with Episodes 1 and 2, then migrate into the performance space where we will hunker down for the rest of the day — though you are free to roam! Stretch your legs, refresh your drink — we’ll be there when you get back!
