Raks Geek: A Sci-Fi + Fantasy Speakeasy

Raks Geek: A Sci-Fi + Fantasy Speakeasy

Sat Mar 9 1:00 am

"Set phasers to stunning." - The Daily Mail (UK)

Experience nerd delight with cosplay and wonder in an intimate speakeasy - we pay tribute to fandoms from Star Wars to Marvel, Doctor Who to Silent Hill with circus artists, fusion bellydancers, object manipulators, and more who have performed around the world. These shows often sell out!

"Never seen a Wookiee bellydance? This can be remedied." - MSN

Voted "Best Dance Troupe" (runner up) by the Chicago Reader, Raks Geek is the premiere cosplay performance company by geeks for geeks - they broke the internet's collective brain with a viral video of a Wookiee bellydancing to a four-piece Klingon band. Raks Geek is based in Chicago, but they've made waves nationally and internationally on MSN, The Daily Mail, and WGN-TV through their commitment to blend a high degree of artistic and technical mastery with fun, creativity, and themes from nerd culture.

"Absolutely electric from the moment they took the stage." - Third Coast Review

"Performances that channel favorite characters from movies and video games." - Chicago Tribune

Limited capacity (max 65%). Masks requested.

Accessibility: Our theater is up a flight of 21 stairs (plus a step up off the street) with railings on both sides of the staircase. We do have a separate entrance with dual railings if you prefer a private entrance that is less trafficked. We can also plan seating to accommodate your preferences (i.e seating you near an exit with close access to a single stall, wheelchair-accessible gender-neutral restroom). The theater is air-conditioned.

We believe everyone should have access to the theater, so we're happy to work with you to ensure the best experience. Email newporttheater@gmail.com so we can help you have the best night possible.
