Bleacher Bums

It's root, root, root for the home team, and die-hard Chicago Cubs fans are making wagers. Unfortunately, baseball is about all they have in common. Things may get ugly.

Bleacher Bums is a comedy conceived by Chicagoan and TV star Joe Mantegna and developed by members of the Organic Theatre Company in the late 1970s. The story follows several regular Cubs fans who know each other from countless other games in the past. As the beer starts to flow and the summer heat takes its toll, the fans begin to grumble, argue, and make bets on the "lovable losers" out on the field.

If emotions run high, don't worry: we'll take a break by singing along with a local celebrity during the seventh inning stretch!
