Big Bugs

Don't be scared, but there are some big bugs on their way to our area. When I say big, I mean BIG. I mean 10 times as big as a human. Even though they are made of iron, aluminum, wood, plastic film and paper, these bugs can move to music. Three ants, a spider, a praying mantis, and who knows what else will gather at "The Bean" in Millennium Park for three free shows.

The performances are presented by Sarruga, a street theater company from Spain, as part of the Goodman Theater's 5th Biennial Latino Theatre Festival. (Don't let that scare you either; the show is intriguing.)

Free 50-minute performance times are as follows:

Friday, July 16 at 9:00pm

Saturday, July 17 at 10:00pm

Sunday, July 18 at 3:00pm
