What do swash-buckling pirates, magical starstuff, and Valentine’s Day have in common? They all come together on February 20 at Adler After Dark: Star-Crossed! A special presentation between The Adler Planetarium and Broadway In Chicago, this magical evening offers attendees the chance to participate in special programs designed around the upcoming production of Peter and the Starcatcher, the original story of Peter Pan and Neverland.

Channel your inner buccaneer and take some silly snapshots at the Pan and the Pirates phootobooth, then upload them to Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #AdlerAfterDark. Or play Star-Crossed Bingo for your chance to win tickets to an upcoming performance of the play! If you want to get wild and crazy, shout out suggestions for the cosmic pirates at Space Pirates Improv to aid them in their quest for galactic booty.

You can also see what happens when you take Valentine’s Day staples – like roses and chocolate – and subject them to liquid nitrogen (a chilling -321 F) and smash ’em with mallets! Learn about the constellations behind the zodiac and find out if your love is literally written in the stars.

It’s all happening tomorrow night at The Adler Planetarium for Adler After Dark from 6 – 10 p.m. You can buy your tickets now or purchase them at the door on the evening of the event. We hope to see you there!

Broadway In Chicago Gift Certificates: The Perfect Present for any Theatre Lover

It’s the time of year when we show our love and appreciation for the people in our lives who mean a lot to us. However, you may not always be certain of the best way to give back to them. If you know someone who is a theatre lover, but aren’t sure which show they’d like to see or when they’ll be free to see a show, Broadway In Chicago gift certificates are a fantastic idea. You can choose from any upcoming event that BIC has announced, which means if you have a Starcatcher or a Fansie in your household you can ensure they’ll have the capacity to purchase tickets when Peter and the Starcatcher or Newsies goes on sale. Not everyone has the chance to see a show when they want to either, so this is a perfect opportunity to give them something special that will make their holiday!


You can purchase them online HERE  or at any theatre box office during operating hours (call (312) 977-1700 for the current week’s hours):

Cadillac Palace Theatre
151 W. Randolph

Oriental Theatre
24 W. Randolph

Bank of America Theatre
18 W. Monroe

Broadway Playhouse
175 E. Chestnut

You can easily take care of gifts for fans of Broadway, theatre and the arts this holiday season. They’re also a great idea for any special occasion throughout the year.

Also, make sure you continue to check out The 12 Show Business Days of Broadway In Chicago for the chance to win a pair of tickets to an upcoming show and restaurant gift certificate! For the sixth day, we’re ‘presenting’ Rock of Ages, returning March 11-16, 2014 at the Bank of America Theatre.
