J was lucky enough to catch a showing of Jekyll and Hyde, the Champaign-Urbana Theatre Company's latest production, last night at the Virginia Theatre in downtown Champaign (yes, that's Illinois, kiddies). IT WAS AWESOME. Like, truly outstandingly phenomenal. We'll spare you any geeking out about the play in context with modern research (it's incredibly relevant) and instead just tell you that the stage design was brilliant, the costumes were beautiful, and the performances were absolutely breathtaking. If any of you Snarkers are out there in CU (fuck it, if anybody's in the state), get your booties down to Champaign and check out the last performance TODAY at 2:30 PM. Tickets are $19 for adults, $17 for seniors/students, and $6 for kiddies.
