This hilarious musical comedy revue might offend sticklers for tradition–people who don’t want to see an aged Annie smoking or a drag queen portray Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof. But those who enjoy the goring of sacred cows won’t be able to stop laughing. Over 90 minutes, creator Gerard Alessandrini lovingly satirizes Broadway’s revered shows and stars as well as its current trends, including the move to jukebox musicals, the passion for puppetry, and the Disneyfication of the Great White Way. Four performers imported from the off-Broadway show demonstrate chops as good as the Broadway headliners they spoof, singing reimagined lyrics to famous tunes and delivering bang-on impersonations and instantly recognizable choreography. The better you know Broadway, the more jokes you’ll get, but even a passing knowledge should suffice for a good time. a Through 6/17: Wed-Thu 7:30 PM, Fri 8 PM, Sat 2, 5, and 8 PM, Sun 2 and 5 PM, Sat 5/5, 2 and 5 PM only. Then 6/20-7/1: Wed 2 and 7:30 PM, Thu 7:30 PM, Fri 8 PM, Sat 2, 5, and 8 PM, Sun 2 PM. Royal George Theatre Center, cabaret, 1641 N. Halsted, 312-988-9000, $39-$49.50.
