WildClaw Presents The Brood: An Evening of the Horror Variety

WildClaw Theatre invites you to join us for a new cabinet of horrors! A one-night-only special engagement where we’ll raise a bit of Halloween spirit from the grave early.

The evening includes a variety show of performers specially curated from the darkest corners of the city; magic and music, burlesque and drag, and maybe even some puppets if you are lucky. We’re even bringing a favorite piece from Deathscribe, WildClaw’s International Audio Drama Festival, back to life just for you.

Get into the spirit with us and come as you are — or as you’d like to be — in costume, cosplay (the scarier the better), or your spookiest swanky apparel. Don’t have time or need some help? Wildclaw makeup artists will be available that night to provide you with special makeup and costume pieces for the evening. Costume or not, just be there!

Drink, laugh, scream, and mingle and when the night is over and you wander home slightly unbalanced — from the whiskey or the cavalcade of strange things you’ve borne witness to — know that you will not be falling asleep early…

Bar opens at 7:00; Doors at 7:30; Show begins at 8:00. Tickets include one drink ticket in purchase price.

Tickets are open seating. All seats (except reserved tables) are available at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4226060 on a first come, first served basis when doors open.

Dark Chicago has received a set of Admit 2 Passes to give away to a special advance screening of MA at 7:30 pm on March 19th. ALL PASSES HAVE BEEN CLAIMED.

Please note: These screenings are first-come, first-served and tend to fill up to capacity, so plan to arrive earlyThe pass you print does NOT guarantee entry if the venue is full!

Everybody’s welcome at Ma’s. But good luck getting home safe.

Oscar® winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.

She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her “Ma.”

But as Ma’s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma’s place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.

MA opens nationwide on May 31st, 2019. #MaMovie

Win 2 Passes to See THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA

Dark Chicago has received Admit 2 Passes to give away to a special advance screening of THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA on Monday, April 15th at the Music Box Theatre. To claim yours, go to www.wbtickets.com/darkchi312!

Please note: These screenings are first-come, first-served and tend to fill up to capacity, so plan to arrive earlyThe pass you print does NOT guarantee entry if the venue is full!

This timeless Hispanic legend comes to terrifying life in “The Curse of La Llorona.” La Llorona.  The Weeping Woman.  A horrifying apparition, caught between Heaven and Hell, trapped in a terrible fate sealed by her own hand.  The mere mention of her name has struck terror around the world for generations.  In life, she drowned her children in a jealous rage, throwing herself in the churning river after them as she wept in pain.  Now her tears are eternal.  They are lethal, and those who hear her death call in the night are doomed.  La Llorona creeps in the shadows and preys on the children, desperate to replace her own.  As the centuries have passed, her desire has grown more voracious…and her methods more terrifying.  In 1970s Los Angeles, La Llorona is stalking the night—and the children. Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm.  Their only hope to survive La Llorona’s deadly wrath may be a curandero, and the mysticism he practices to keep evil at bay, on the fringes where fear and faith collide. Beware of her chilling wail…she will stop at nothing to lure you into the gloom.  Because there is no peace for her anguish.  There is no mercy for her soul. And there is no escape from the curse of La Llorona. 

THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA opens nationwide on April 19th, 2019. For more information, visit http://www.TheCurseOfLaLlorona.com
