Empty Threats is extended through July 21st!

Empty Threats is extended through July 21st! There are now three additional chances to see Lily Mooney’s intense and thrilling original play, with an additional pay-what-you-can performance on Thursday July 19th. Catch it before it’s gone, tickets here.

“(Empty Threats) is one of the most provocative theatrical experiences I’ve had this year… Lily Mooney has created a fiction that is stranger than truth while allowing truth to break into it. It’s a complex conundrum of an evening, and I found myself enjoying the game completely.” -Chicago On Stage

“The Neo-Futurists’ EMPTY THREATS is not common or expected or simple…Mooney is not only an expert at her craft, she’s also empathetic, never leaving you adrift or without an ‘in’.” -PerformInk Chicago

“It’s the best-executed concept I’ve ever seen on the Neo-Futurists’ stage… Empty Threats is smart. It’s quirky. It’s nothing you expect and more than you hope it will be… It’s worth waiting in line for. It’s worth seeing twice.” -Splash Magazines
