Chicago Humanities Festival presents Vélo Théâtre's The Postman

Laden with letters and packages to deliver, a postman sets out on his bicycle. Opening one of the packages, he discovers a fantastic and magical world inside. One package — and adventure — leads to another in this wordless play, a living postcard full of imagination, humor, and the wonder of discovery. France’s Vélo Théâtre returns to Stages, Sights & Sounds after performing There’s a Rabbit in the Moon in the 2010 festival. 

This performance is recommended for ages 4 and up. Running time is 60 minutes.

Cycling yields many benefits.  Nice calves, happy commutes, low travel costs.  And now, special offers via The Chainlink.  Check back here soon for more exclusive perks for members of our community.  See you in the bike lane!

MCA Lover!

Awesome! 3 more pairs for may 3rd and 4 pairs left for may 5th.

What keeps me biking in Chicagoland?

I would have to say ...

All the great Folks I have met through the !

We'd love a second pair for the 5th, if there aren't enough other takers.

The 5th would be cool (Jim Presley)...and why isn't anyone else answering the question?...

Oh!  My poor reading comprehension, apparently.  

The kids keep us biking in Chicago!  And that I hate hunting or paying for parking.

Do you have any more for May 5th? Thanks for doing this. What keep me riding?

My kid, like Elizabeth said above. Also, it's often the fastest, cheapest and most pleasant way to get around. And, because I hope to encourage others by example.

I bike because it's the closest thing to flying.  It makes the every journey as fun as the destination.  

This postman demonstrates that biking to work is the most effective way to commute:

(I can't make the play, but enjoy!)

What keeps me biking in Chicago? Besides the bikey happiness and convenience, it's the biking lanes--especially the one on Damen. :-)

(I have to pass on the tickets because I can't make it any of the nights.)
