I know no one really wants to go out on a Friday night and pay $15 to feel bad about the state of the world, but. I would encourage all you Chicagoans to check out A Child's History of Bombing at the Neo-Futurarium. Word on the street (and by street, I mean box office) is that not many reservations have been made for Friday, March 3, so if you're at all inclined to attend, I would strongly recommend that you consider doing so tomorrow night. Regardless, please try to make it out before it closes on the 11th. It's a vital and truth-seeking piece, filled with great humility and curiosity about some of the most epic tragedies of the past century. Kudos to DS and co-creator Greg Allen for compiling and presenting this information with a perfect balance of personal horror and statistical magnitude, buoyed by the very best of what experimental/
multimedia theater can do. And, if you go, just be thankful you won't have to sit behind the Curtis LeMay fanclub like I did.
