Theater Spotlight

Cult filmmaker and self-proclaimed "King of Filth" John Waters serves as the inspiration for Jim & Melissa's new sketch comedy revue Freaky Nasty Trash. Written and performed by Reilly Willson and Shelby Quinn, the adults-only show touches upon topics ranging from pegging to ingesting body hair. Freaky Nasty Trash continues through Thursday, June 8, at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont Ave. Tickets are $10; call 773-327-5252 or visit Stage773.com .

Critics' Picks

3C, A Red Orchid Theatre, through Sept. 10. David Adjmi's comically critical deconstruction of the TV series Three's Company can be unbalanced, but an outstanding acting ensemble shows how there can be palpable pain behind all those sitcom laughs. SCM

Into the Beautiful North, 16th Street Theatre, Berwyn, through June 3. A young woman travels north seeking heroes to protect her dusty Mexican village of Tres Camarones ( Three Shrimp ). Karen Zacarias' adaptation of Luis Albert Urrea's comic picaresque novel blends fancy and contemporary truth, colorfully staged with vigor and charm. JA

La Havana Madrid, Teatro Vista at the Steppenwolf 1700, through May 28. This warm, tune-filled history of the Chicago Caribbean-Latinx experience was sold out before it even opened, but if you hurry, you can get on the wait list. MSB

Shakespeare in Love, Chicago Shakespeare Theater at Navy Pier, through June 11. Blurring the line between art and autobiography is always risky, but when it's this smart and funny and features a cute dog in the cast, who cares? MSB
