A spoof on Urinetown - Chris Piatt and Novid Parsi

There's plenty of unique decor in both the upstairs and downstairs theater of the Chopin, which is run by husband-and-wife team Zygmunt Dyrkacz and Lela Headd (both pictured). The Chopin features dynamic year-round programming, including BackStage Theater's Company's current The Skin of Our Teeth .

The Chopin also hosts vital storefront troupes (such as Collaction and Uma Productions), as well as sometimes dazzling work of European companies. Chris Piatt and Novid Parsi, Time Out Chicago
