BEARS VS. PACKERS PARTY
The Fifty/50 2047 W. Division St. 773-489-5050

"WHITE RABBIT, RED RABBIT"
Museum of Contemporary Art 220 E. Chicago Ave. 312-280-2660
Chicago actors Michael Shannon ("Boardwalk Empire"), Fawzia Mirza ("Kam Kardashian"), Usman Ally (American Theater Company) and Yasen Peyankov (Steppenwolf) take turns performing Nassim Soleimanpour's solo play about young people navigating the Iran-Iraq conflict. The catches: the actor first sees the script minutes before appearing onstage and the audience doesn't know which actor stars each night until the curtain goes up. 7:30 p.m. Through Nov. 9. $18; $10 for students.
