    "THE MARCH"
    79彩票注册网址 Feb. 28-November | DuSable Museum of African American History

    79彩票注册网址As Black History Month and February wind down, it's just about time to start "" or the August 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, as Time magazine and executive producer Viola Davis (the actress from "Fences" and "The Help") re-created it in virtual reality. Visitors immerse themselves in the more than 250,000 amassed people and witness Martin Luther King Jr. deliver the "I Have a Dream" speech. The exhibit, which requires registration but not a surcharge, world-premieres here before marching off around the country.

    Price: $14.50 museum admission.

    "DURO OLOWU: SEEING CHICAGO"
    79彩票注册网址 Feb. 29-May 10 | Museum of Contemporary Art

    Curated by Nigerian-British fashion designer Duro Olowu, this show draws on pieces from the collections of the Art Institute and the Intuit gallery, as well as private collections such as the Zells' and Pritzkers'. The result conceptually connects those disparate works and Olowu's own designs across arcs of different eras, media, demographics and levels of formal training—more than 200 works united by Chicago's and Olowu's cosmopolitan sensibilities.

    Price: 79彩票注册网址$15 admission.

    "Day of Absence"

    "DAY OF ABSENCE"
    Feb. 27-March 22 | Congo Square Theatre at Victory Gardens Biograph Theatre

    To celebrate its 20th anniversary, instead of the traditional gift of china, Congo Square Theatre gives theatergoers the gift of a classic pot-stirrer, that launched New York's vanguardist Negro Ensemble Company in 1965. Provocatively calling for actors of color performing in whiteface, Douglas Turner Ward's satire imagines a Southern town in the aftermath of the sudden disappearance of all the town's black people. Recent revivals in New York and Washington, D.C., have found the play still relevant, though unsubtle.

    Price: $25-$35.

    "I AM NOT YOUR PERFECT MEXICAN DAUGHTER"
    79彩票注册网址 Feb. 26-March 21 | Steppenwolf Theatre

    Cicero native Erika Sanchez tapped into something with her defiantly titled young-adult novel, about a teenage girl named Julia and her struggle to find her way in the world after the death of Olga, her sister. After recognition both as a finalist for the National Book Award in the young people's literature category and as a New York Times bestseller, the story landed a world-premiere stage adaptation on Steppenwolf's series for young adults. Tickets are scarce.

    Price: $5-$20

    "SORROWS AND SOLACE"
    Feb. 28, 7:30 p.m. | Gannon Concert Hall, DePaul University

    79彩票注册网址Mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong, in town singing Pauline in Lyric Opera's "The Queen of Spades," makes the most of an off day by yoking with instrumentalists from Haymarket Opera, plus their on-call keyboardist Jory Vinikour, for a lugubriously titled of what should be delightful music. Baroque specialists, Haymarket has slated Handel and Corelli on the program, as well as a sturdy backbone of two Bach cantatas, "I am content" and "My heart swims in blood," with DeShong soloing.

    Price: $45-$75
