Theater Oobleck brings back its quadrennial election show in the form of a four-week Hideout residency this fall. Each night features a cabaret of performances by Oobleck regulars, including a message from the First Millennialist Sacred and Profane Temple of the Puerto Rican Apocalypse (10/23), a new puppet play by Mickle Maher, performed by Samuel Taylor (10/30), and an election night with live returns hosted by Jeff Dorchen, parachuting in from the coast (11/6). Each night features a house band led by Mucca Pazza's Dave Smith.

No director. New works. Free if you're broke. Twenty-nine years.

Theater Oobleck is an artistic collective dedicated to producing and performing original works of theater for the benefit of, and at low or no cost to, the members of the Chicago community and beyond. All our works are created and developed by members of the Oobleck ensemble, working in concert to create a collaborative vision without an overseeing director. We have produced over 70 world-premiere productions over the past 30 years, as well as 18 remounts of earlier productions.

While we are focused in creating work in Chicago, we have also toured to New York (eight times); Puerto Rico (twice); Madison (twice); Milwaukee; Houston; Ann Arbor; South Bend; Providence; Worcester, Massachusetts; New London, Connecticut; Northfield, Minnesota; Champaign, Illinois; Lewiston, Maine; and Durham, Raleigh, & Carrboro, North Carolina. Oobleck works have been re-mounted by theaters in American cities including Austin, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Portland, Milwaukee, San Francisco, Cleveland, and Savannah; and internationally in the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Finland, and Luxembourg.
