A dozen actors play more than 100 characters in "Peter and the Starcatcher". Combining their acting talent with ingenious stagecraft and an imaginative story to reveal the origins of "the boy who wouldn't grow up," "Peter and the Starcatcher" is the swashbuckling, madcap prequel to "Peter Pan". The comedy takes a hilarious romp through the Neverland you never knew in an action-packed adventure that brings pirates, orphans and secret agents of the queen together on the high seas. Based on the best-selling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, and written by Rick Elice ("Jersey Boys"), "Peter and the Starcatcher" weaves an enchanting tale that appeals to both adults and kids. Don't miss the multiple Tony-winning show that "The New York Times" called "the most exhilarating storytelling on Broadway in decades" when it lands at the Piven Theatre in Evanston. [less-]

Whether you're a Quidditch expert or merely a muggle, you'll find laughs aplenty in this comedy that takes on the zany challenge of cramming all seven books in the popular Harry Potter series -- that's roughly 4,000 pages -- into 70 hilarious minutes. Created by Olivier-nominated actors Dan Clarkson and Jeff Turner, "Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience -- A Parody by Dan and Jeff" has played to sold-out houses all over the world. Two actors inhabit 360 characters, fend off a live fire-breathing dragon and even manage to stage a real-life game of Quidditch in the theater. The show was a critic's pick of "The New York Times", "Daily Herald" and "Time Out London", among others, who hailed it as a must-see family event for anyone age 6 to Dumbledore. See it in Chicago at Broadway Playhouse. [less-]

With their amazing athletic, acrobatic and clowning skills, the team of insanely talented men and women known as the Harlem Globetrotters is sorta like the greatest circus troupe you've ever seen -- but with way more slam dunks. And Hi-Lite, Too Tall, El Gato and the others know how to do more than just shoot hoops -- they'll wow you with ball-handling wizardry, rim-rattling jams and four-pointers shot from 30 feet away, not to mention their really clever comedy bits. The 'Trotters have been one of the best live shows around for more than 90 years and count Henry Kissinger, Whoopi Goldberg and Pope Francis as honorary members -- though you probably won't see that trio making any under-the-knee passes on this 2018 World Tour. But they are making a stop at the Philips Arena in Atlanta to play the long-suffering Washington Generals ... and you're humming "Sweet Georgia Brown" right now, aren't you? [less-]
