Best Of
A nonprofit theater group on a mission, the talented troupe of Uptown Players put their dramatic skills to good use by putting on productions that aim to increase awareness of relevant social issues in a campy and hilarious way: Think Mommie Queerest and Re-Designing Women. Their ability to strike that balance has bought them a loyal following in the Oak Lawn community and beyond, with scores of loyal season subscribers.
