About this Article
"War Horse" at the Cadillac Palace Theatre is only in town for a short run, so now's the time to see it. If you'd rather see a show in the suburbs, there's "Singin' in the Rain" at Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook Terrace and The Rockettes finish up their run at the Akoo in Rosemont this weekend. See Tiny Sturgess, the world's tallest professional basketball player, when the Harlem Globetrotters return to the Allstate Arena in Rosemont Friday.
