$50 for a ticket to see The Motherf**ker with the Hat at Steppenwolf on February 27 with pre-show drinks and pizza at Balena


Limited Quantity Available!


Join the Chicago Reader for an evening at the theater.

Enjoy an assortment of gourmet pizzas, wine and beer from 5:30-7:30 at Balena, named one of Bon Appetit's Best New Restaurants of 2012. Then walk across the street to Steppenwolf to see the show.


This is what our theater critic, Tony Adler, had to say about the show:

"I could quote this stuff all day. The slang. The sly detail. The prosody—especially the rhythms, punctuated by hard-sound repetitions ("pie" and "place," "like" and "talk"). Not to mention the heartbreaking comedy of two fuckups trying hard not to fuck up yet again, even though fucking up holds an intense allure for both of them. And then there's the mechanics of Guirgis's storytelling. Boom, boom, boom: he lays out what we need to know and, just as importantly, what we don't and wish we did—like, what's the real story behind that hat? It's absolutely masterful."


This is what our food critic, Mike Sula, had to say about Balena:

"Pizzas are good too, every bit up to the high standards we expect in this Neapolitan age: a puffy, yeasty crust and a flat, well-blistered interior that softens toward its nucleus, just strong enough to support the "Lasagna Pie" with Bolognese sauce, ricotta, and basil."
