British author Terry Pratchett is a master of satire, and his Monstrous Regiment is one of his finest works to date. So it's well worth seeing this great adaptation of the original book while it's in Chicago this summer.
Following the antics of a Borogravian army unit as they make their way to the frontline to fight for their country, the soldiers include an Igor, a vampire, a troll, a religious fanatic and a runaway. They have but one thing in common - they are all secretly women.
Lovers of the original text will be pleased to know that the adaptation has been kept very literal, which works fine because the source dialogue is hilarious. Occasional visual gags only serve to make what Pratchett created even funnier and more absurd.
You don't have to really 'get' the author to love his sharp satire and outstanding wit. Stay at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel Chicago.
A fantastic exhibition on science, technology and invention is coming to the Field Museum.
Watch some of Shakespeare's best work across Chicago's many parks.
The Black Harvest Film Festival will be held in Chicago next month.
See an open-air performance of Shakespeare in Chicago next month.
