Aug 18th - Sep 3rd. The Fly Honey Show, back for the seventh year in a row, promises an intimate yet explosive performance celebration of body positivity through a feminist perspective. - Tickets $20-$35.

The Fly Honey Show reimagines the classic cabaret - featuring Chicago's premiere performance artists, a live band, and The Fly Honey + Hive: an ensemble of empowered individuals who come together to provoke desire and encourage all who chose to walk through the door to love themselves boldly. The Fly Honey Show is presented by The Inconvenience + created by countless Chicago artists.

 

"Pregamers ought to consider Irish coffee before attending this annual late-night marathon of burlesque rapture, which parties on until around last call. Accompanied by a live rock band, a rotating, diverse cast of performers celebrate bodies and self-love in a punk-styled, socially progressive variety show. Interdisciplinary collective the Inconvenience has cultivated a sizable community of artists and audience members over time, and there's no question the show's gender politics preach to the choir, but that's one of its greatest values-in a year rife with disheartening stories, a little church does the mind and body some good. Emcee Mary Williamson is a razor-sharp firebrand when she yields a microphone, and this year's run has the added bonus of soaking up some of the magical juju of the Chopin's basement theater". - Dan Jakes, Chicago Reader 8/24/16
