This weekend don't miss the quadruple feature at Portage Park Theater. These are some real blasts from the past and truly an homage to the early horror flick.
You'll have the opportunity to see Abbott & Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (1953), The Phantom of the Opera (1925), The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and The Ghost & Mr. Chicken (1966). Grab some extra popcorn for this one. It starts Sunday at 1:30 pm and lasts until 8:30 pm.
Theatre Y is now presenting the world premier of "I Killed My Mother," by award-winning Eastern European playwright András Visky, directed by Karin Conrad at the Greenhouse Theater, 2257 N. Lincoln Ave. Studio.
With Clip's (her soul mate) help she struggles to transcend the brutality of her surroundings and learns to "kill," that is turn her back forever, on parasitic bonds in order to realize her own extraordinary identity.

With a program sure to inspire any dancer, the Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago will showcase their greatest hits in "Ovations." The group is coming back for their Spring show after critical acclaim last October.
They will be performing at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance in Chicago's Millennium Park tonight, Saturday. With a robust program of six award-winning selections, this is surely something not to miss.
THE GOLD COAST
OK Foodies, be prepared for this one. If you're a foodie, then you're very aware of Tru Restaurant. The new M Burger at 161 E. Huron opens this Thursday and replaces the old chef's table from Tru. There's not a lot of room to sit and dine, but this is sure to be a big grab-and-go lunch spot. By the way, they have a couple chicken items too.
It's time to start learning more about what this great suburb has to offer. The Evanston History Center has a great deal of information about the growth of this near north suburb as well as a direct connection to the Burnham Plan.
With a newly re-opened Dawes House, you can view the exhibit "Daniel Burnham's Evanston." The tour showcases Burnham's home and a show of fashions from his era. Everything is viewable by tour only and tours are Thursday through Saturday from 1-4pm.
