“Bad Jews” set for return to Chicago

SHARE “Bad Jews” set for return to Chicago

It appears there is no end of interest in “Bad Jews.”

The Theater Wit production of Joshua Harmon’s comedy of cross-cultural manners – which not only enjoyed a successful initial run in its Chicago premiere, and is virtually sold-out for its summer run at Skokie’s North Shore Center for the Performing Arts (where it closes on Aug. 8) – but it is now scheduled to return to the city.

Beginning Aug. 28, the play – a look at young Jews grappling with faith, family and identity – will be remounted at the Royal George Theatre’s 164-seat cabaret space at 1641 N. Halsted, where it is slated to run through Oct. 4. Tickets ($24-$58) will go on sale July 31. Call (312) 988-9000 or visit http://www.badjewschicago.com.
