If you happen to be in the Chicago area this weekend and you’re in the mood for a few laughs, you might want to stop by the Live Bait Theater on North Clark and check out NEO: A MATRIX MUSICAL.The Chicago Sun Times lists the show as “somewhat recommended,” so it can’t be all that bad.
The performance features choreographed segments supported by the soundtrack from THE MATRIX, various disco songs and some selections from WEST SIDE STORY and THE LITTLE MERMAID. One of the highlights is a ballet interpretation of the scene where Trinity escapes from the agents, performed to the tune of TONIGHT from WEST SIDE STORY. Other segments include, Neo singing “The Whoa Song” and an appearance by the Oracle as the disco queen. Plus, there’s an interesting turn of events in which Switch is brought back, except now she’s interested in Trinity.
