No Child

I had the opportunity to see No Child at Lookingglass Friday night. High fives to Hal Brooks for hooking me up with a couple tickets for the show. Real nice of him. I met up with Sarah K for an after work beer, shot, and cheezborger at the famous subterranean Billy Goat Tavern. I'd never been before. It's charming in a that's probably a health code violation! sort of way. Then we hoofed it up Michigan Ave, arteries pumping cheezborger grease, to balance out the dive experience with classier and tourist-priced Maker's Mark Manhattans at Bistro 110 by the Water Tower there. And the show? Amazing, funny and moving, all good things. Nilaja Sun's performance is, I don't know how to describe it, the intense shape-shifting of it... magical? Yeah, magical.
