CTA riders, can you name that tune? A cabaret group is examining everyday life on the CTA through the eyes of riders.
CT-Hey!, a performance by the Chicago Cabaret Project, opens Wednesday at Mary’s Attic, 5400 N. Clark St.
The cabaret group remixes popular theater hits including "Red Line (Skid Row)" from the "Little Shop of Horrors," "The Trolley Song" from "Meet Me in St. Louis," and "There Are Worse Things I Could Do" from "Grease."
"When people are commuting in their day-to-day lives, they all have experiences that are interesting, to say the least," said Cabaret Project founder Kyle Hustedt, 31, of Lakeview. "Everyone has had their moment on the train or bus."
The hour-and-a-half long show debuts at 7:30 p.m. The performance runs every Wednesday through September. Tickets are $10 at the door.
The Chicago Cabaret Project isn't the only group to perform about the CTA this summer. The second installment of "El Stories," a play about life on the Brown Line, begins its run July 15 at the Greenhouse Theater Center, 2257 N Lincoln Ave.
