Josh Weckesser Dance Spectacular Details >

Building Stage Chicago
412 N Carpenter St
Chicago, IL

The indeninable, often quirky, always tall Josh Weckesser is at it again with what is fast becoming an annual event on par with Lollapalooza, only for dance: the Josh Weckesser Dance Spectacular. The Fourth Annual JWDS, subtitled Big Time!, will be an evening of new dances, visual artistry, comedy, and of course, Josh himself. With sights so fantastic, so incredible, and curiosities so shocking you'll demand your money back (but you won't get it).

Tickets for all shows are $15 or $10 with a hard luck story available at the door by cash or credit (hard luck story need not be true, and the best hard luck story gets their money back)
