Sacred Sounds: A Night of Asian American Storytelling – Online
Buy Tickets FREE COMP
Lyrical Assembly is hosting a virtual event called Sacred Sounds: A night of Asian-American storytelling. Our event will feature Bailey Fan, a Chinese American poet from the Bay Area, and Cathy Park Hong, author of Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning by Cathy Park Hong. This event comes at the conclusion of a separate Lyrical Assembly project, called “Reads for Resistance ’’ – a community reading group that is dedicated to reading books by BIPOC authors. This past month we have been reading Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning by Cathy Park Hong. As our group has been reading and learning about the Asian-American experience through Minor Feelings, we wanted to dive deeper into learning about the complexities of being Asian-American, and deepen our understanding of how to walk in solidarity with Asian-American communities. With this event, hope to provide an intentional space of listening, learning, and healing.

In Search of the Sublime – Online
Buy Tickets $10 $20
An online, interactive performance. With jokes. You’re on the run, you’re chasing a feeling – any feeling. You stop to catch your breath. Suddenly, you are on a stage in a body that looks exactly like and nothing like your own. You are surrounded by four peculiar strangers and a cheeky announcer who are trying to conjure something…monumental. And they can’t do it without you. Using suggestions from the online audience, the cleansing power of running, and some truly excellent music, you join in weaving together tales of terror and awe in a concerted effort to achieve The Sublime. Part-poem, part-story, part-something else altogether, this interactive live-online experience asks one question – can you feel it?

Detectives Shawna Williams and Felix Decaro have a knack for solving crimes, in fact they’re the best at it. In a universe very similar to theirs, however, they are two seemingly helpless goofballs living in an 80’s cop sitcom/ movie who may just be smarter than they appear. When both pairs stumble upon a case involving the death of humans in one world and a robot in the other, their worlds wind up on a collision course of comedy, robots, and a warehouse with a lot of doors. Who committed the murders? Is teleportation real? And who can you trust, humans or robots? When Shawna and Felix of any world are on the case, you better believe these mysteries and more will be solved!

Saints & Sinners Bingo – Online
Buy Tickets $20 $20
Vicki Quade, co-creator of the hit comedy, Late Nite Catechism-, brings to life a new comedy, SAINTS & SINNERS BINGO, the latest in her new series of streaming bingo comedies. This marks the first professional performance of SAINTS & SINNERS BINGO, filmed in Chicago. Quade initially wrote the show to be used for fundraising and was invited to perform it in 2016 for a major fundraiser for the Academy of Our Lady of Guam. In reviewing the show, KUAM News in Guam called it, “A side-splitting comedy romp.” SAINTS & SINNERS BINGO features the character of Mrs. Mary Margaret O’Brien, a former nun and current bingo caller. This performance features Chicago actress Kathleen Puls Andrade. It was recorded in 2020 at the Royal George Theatre in Chicago as part of the Nuns4Fun series called “From the Archives.” The premise is simple. The economy is down, donations have dried up, and someone has to save the parish! So the Archdiocese sends over Mrs. Mary Margaret O’Brien, a former nun and the head of the new bingo fundraising department. Her clever idea: a calendar of famous saints and notorious sinners.

Bette Davis Ain’t For Sissies Starring Jessica Sherr — Online
Buy Tickets $14.75 $29.50
In this 90-minute acclaimed solo show, actress and playwright, Jessica Sherr, powerfully channels Bette Davis’ fight against the male-dominated studio system. On the night of the 1939 Oscars, Bette Davis returns home knowing she’s to lose Best Actress to Vivien Leigh’s Scarlett O’Hara, because the press has leaked the winners. Miss Davis takes us on the bumpy ride of her tumultuous rise, as the tenacious actress fights her way through the studio system to the top. Witness Bette triumph over misogyny to win roles and compensation on par with her male counterparts. See what happens when someone who always wins…loses. Through conversations with her mother Ruthie, her friendship with Olivia De Havilland, stories about her love affair with William Wyler, her four failed marriages, her unpleasant relationship with her daughter, ageism in Hollywood, and her feelings of regret about her groundbreaking court case with Warner Brothers (which she lost), we experience Bette’s most defining moments and her at her most vulnerable. Directed by Drama Desk Award Winning Karen Carpenter.

Delivered directly to your living room, this live, streaming conjuring competition lets audience members choose the challenges, judge each magician’s efforts, and vote for their favorite! Audience members can purchase participant tickets to interact directly with the performers via Skype, making decisions that affect the outcome of tricks or having their minds read remotely and in real time!
