The Capitol Steps
The political satire group The Capitol Steps gives you its take on the presidential campaign between Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama: "Take the Money and Run for President." It's the title of the ensemble's latest comedy production and most certainly will offer more entertainment than an empty chair.
Why go: The inaugural address from this comedy troupe that has been performing for more than 30 years will be like none you have ever heard.
Reconsider: Politics is parody.
Friday through Sunday at North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, 9501 Skokie Boulevard, Skokie; $47.50-$54.50; northshorecenter.org
