The name Bughouse comes from a park in Chicago, Washington Square between Dearborn and Clark at Chestnut where various orators and actors would perform from the early 1900’s.  “Bughouse Square – a gathering place for orators, free speech advocates and rabble-rousers of old.  Slang for mental institution, “Bughouse” seemed to fit the cast of characters that frequented the square.  It is in the spirit of that place that we hope to establish ourselves.” (from Bughouse website)


Today the Bughouse is a home for improv, dance, and other arts.  Our LSSC member Darren Stephen will perform improv comedy along with ex-Second City actors on May 18, starting at 7:30 pm.  Come join us – sign up at LSSC and then reserve your space for $10 at Bring your own drinks!  Don’t miss this fun time!

After the performance join the cast at the Black Eagle Chicago, a bar down the street. Drinks are 10% off when you tell bartender you just attended Bughouse show.
