Esther, a Black seamstress in 1905, sews her way out of poverty in Intimate Apparel creating fine lingerie for Manhattan clients while longing for a husband and a future. She bonds with a Jewish fabric merchant, a relationship they know cannot grow. So when correspondence with a Caribbean man leads to a marriage proposal, she accepts. When this quickly leads to regret, Esther returns to sewing to rebuild her life and refashion her future. Jameson's Charhouse (9525 N. Skokie Blvd.) and Nando's PERi PERi (Old Orchard Rd. & Skokie Blvd.) are great options to round out your night out.

While a raging thunderstorm traps 10 weekend guests in an English country home, they discover wealthy Lord Rancour has been murdered. Did the butler do it? Is the killer the saucy maid, the ne’er-do-well nephew, the young ingénue with her dashing new boyfriend or another guest? Filled with campy songs and zany characters, Something's Afoot is a hilarious spoof of our favorite murder mysteries.

Through May 1

$40 tickets with promo code “NSHORE”
It’s a grand time for a revival of the beloved Once Upon a Mattress. Long ago and far away, Queen Aggravain decreed no one could marry until her son found a bride. Many princesses came to win his hand, but none could pass the Queen’s impossible tests. That is, until a “shy” swamp princess showed up. With a wave of wonderful songs, this rollicking spin on The Princess and the Pea provides side-splitting shenanigans. Hit Howard Street restaurants Good To Go Jamaican Cuisine (711 Howard St.), Peckish Pig (623 Howard St.) and Ward Eight (629 W. Howard St.) for a meal or small bites and cocktails.
