David Kersnar of Lookingglass Theatre Company will direct "Sita Ram," starring Natya Dance Theatre and the Chicago Children's Choir. Josephine Lee, president and artistic director of Chicago Children's Choir, commissioned Kersnar to create the musical interpretation of the Hindu Sanskrit Ramayana.
Why go: The ancient story of Rama is one of India's greatest epics.
Reconsider: The Ramayana is said to have 24,000 verses in seven books; that's a lot to take in during one performance.
