    "EL GRECO: AMBITION AND DEFIANCE"
    79彩票注册网址 March 7-June 21 | Art Institute of Chicago

    79彩票注册网址El Greco bounced from his native Crete to Renaissance Italy and Spain, painting altarpieces and portraits with one foot still in his training in the style of pre-Renaissance religious icons. El Greco (his sobriquet means "the Greek" in Spanish) will echo for local museumgoers for his very tall "The Assumption of the Virgin," an Art Institute fixture on near-continuous display, save for conservation and loan, since 1906. The museum situates that work amid 56 others in co-organized with the Louvre and the Grand Palais in Paris.

    ALVIN AILEY AMERICAN DANCE THEATER 
    March 4-8 | Auditorium Theatre

    Making its to Chicago, the black-culture-enriched modern dance troupe stages four different novelty-spangled programs with little overlap other than the company's traditional closing piece, Ailey's own "Revelations," now 60 years old. Among the new stuff are "Ode" (March 4 and March 7), on the fragility of life vis-a-vis gun violence, and "Greenwood" (March 6), about the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, the same event that gained broader cultural recognition from its treatment in the HBO series "Watchmen."

    Half a double feature of film festivals opening, the Music Box's of this extremely large actual-film film format pays homage to both its earlier incarnations and its retro renewal, which owes its existence in part to attention from events like this very festival.

    CHICAGO EUROPEAN UNION FILM FESTIVAL 
    79彩票注册网址 March 6-April 2 | Gene Siskel Film Center

    The other half, the Siskel Center's , visits the complete circuit of all 27 member countries of the European Union, as well as grandfathering in the Brexited United Kingdom for old time's sake. Because it holds the current presidency of the EU, Croatia hosts opening night, with the dramedy "Comic Sans," about a dissolute adman with more evident charm than the movie's eponymous font, and a post-film reception. Werner Herzog's latest doc, "Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chadwin," screens March 28 at 3 and April 1 at 6.

    "WHAT THE CONSTITUTION MEANS TO ME"
    79彩票注册网址 March 4-April 12 | Broadway Playhouse

    Heidi Schreck's of the United States' founding document places her teenage self at an American Legion, answering the high school oratory prompt in the title of the play. Critically ratified in its off- and on-Broadway incarnations, the play tours with an amended cast including Tony nominee Maria Dizzia. The play runs without intermission, but there is a second act: a debate on whether to abolish the Constitution between Dizzia and an actual high school debater, positions determined by coin flip.

    "GREY GARDENS"
    March 6-April 26 | Theo Ubique Cabaret Theater

    The 1975 documentary depicts the lives of two women, both named Edith Beale, relatives of Jackie Kennedy, who lived in reclusive squalor in a rundown mansion in the Hamptons. For many years, the film inhabited the cult-classic realm, but since its repurposing as a play, movie and musical, the cult now has enough converts to be a sect. Theo Ubique here stages the musical, where the first half shows the Beales in their salad days and the second half at the time of the doc. The same actress who plays the older Edie in the first half plays the younger in the second.
