Super Bowl parties don’t have to be the only activity you pencil in this weekend. There are a number of options for suburban fun — from a comedy on stage in Oak Brook to a weekend of Groundhog Day fun in Woodstock.
Fox Valley Rep’s comic murder musical a true ‘Treat’
Watching Fox Valley Repertory’s new production of “No Way to Treat a Lady” is like uncovering a small, forgotten gem. Though not without some imperfections, this musical comedy thriller shines with laughs, spine-tingling chills and an engaging plot. Audiences who head to Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles will be rewarded with a fun, compact musical comedy about a New York detective who breaks from his schlubby shell to fall in love while pursuing a fame-obsessed serial killer.
‘Blacklist’ back with more mysterious twists
Raymond “Red” Reddington isn’t someone who ordinarily needs much help, but he’s getting a major boost anyway. “The Blacklist” resumes its second NBC season Sunday, Feb. 1, as the show chosen to follow one of the biggest events of any television year: the Super Bowl. The special telecast also serves to promote the suspense drama’s move to a different night, since the episode will lead directly into the series’ debut in its new slot the following Thursday.
Miranda Lambert leads ACM Awards with 8 nominations

What else is on TV on Super Sunday?
Super Sunday is here, but not all of us want to watch Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks take on deflated ball-handler Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. There's puppies, kittens, comedians, time-travelers, zombies and starship captains waiting for you this weekend.
