    The Legacy of Chicago Dance
    “The Legacy of Chicago Dance” waltzes through more than 100 years of dance in the city, showing how different styles and traditions have not only co-existed but converged in unexpected and creative ways. Drawing on the Newberry Library’s vast dance archives, the exhibit covers a wide range of dancers, studios, and styles through an array of materials, including rare archival videos, photos, costumes, and pointe shoes worn by powerhouse ballerinas like Anna Pavlova.

    The Second City

    Algorithm Nation or the Static Quo

    The Second City

    Algorithm Nation or the Static Quo
    Algorithm Nation or The Static Quo takes no prisoners (well, maybe just a few prisoners) during this frenetic, ultra-current, fall-down funny ride that focuses its sights on hyper-violence, astrological love connections, being woke, pyramid schemes, Facebook soldiers, Black Twitter, morning TV and a whole lot more. Consider this show to be the kind of escape room you’ll never want to escape from…ever.

About The Area

When Mrs. O'Leary's cow burned down the city of Chicago in 1871, there was no time wasted in building it back up bigger and better than before. "The Windy City" offers you culture, sports and delicious food, all with the famed friendliness that Chicagoans are known for.

Whatever your sport of choice, you'll find a strong sports culture here. With the Black Hawks, Bears, Cubs, Bulls and White Sox, there's never a lull in the action, especially when attending a game at iconic Wrigley Field. Whether you're digging into a classic Chicago-style deep dish pizza, exploring its mobster past, or solving one of Chicago’s many escape rooms, you'll never grow bored in this city.

Don't forget to check out the amazing parks, explore Navy Pier and take a trip to see "The Bean" because it just wouldn't be Chicago without it.
