CONTENT ADVISORY: CHICAGO explores themes of crime, violence, corruption, betrayal, and moral ambiguity. It contains strong language and adult dialogue, as well as references to and depictions of murder, domestic violence, gun violence, sexual themes, infidelity, and alcohol use. The play addresses mature themes such as manipulation, celebrity culture, and the pursuit of fame at any cost. Viewer discretion is advised, and if you are sensitive to any of the above-mentioned themes, it is recommended that you approach this production with caution.



Merely Underground is a small space, and we want to ensure that as many people can see our play as possible. To maximize audience capacity, we have built risers and have three seating options. All seats have a great view of the stage.

Standard Banquet Chair. Sorry, no banquet included.

Beach chair.  Front row and nice & low. You won’t miss a thing!  Perfect for families or for pretending that you are on the beach. 

Comfortable padded stool with high back.  If you are worried about someone’s head blocking you, this is a great choice.  We appreciate you selecting these if you are able, so that people who are unable to get on a stool can have the chairs.

Things you need to know


Merely Players believes that theatre belongs to everyone. All employees, volunteers, and audience members – whatever their race, ethnicity, national origin, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability or disability – are welcomed, supported, and valued.

Merely Players celebrates the dignity and inherent potential of every human. We reject any form of discrimination or hatred, as we aspire to create a community built on respect, belonging, diversity, inclusion, collaboration, and creativity.



We humbly ask that you consider contributing to Merely Players, a 501(c) (3) organization. 

As is true in theatres across the nation, ticket prices account for only about 50% of our production costs.  The rest of our expenses must be met through private donations and grants. 

Live theatre is a dynamic, expensive venture, and our costs keep rising.  Donations are used to meet venue expenses, pay royalties, hire actors and other personnel, pay for technical elements such as scenery, costumes, and lighting, and to publicize our shows. The money we raise directly affects the quality of our productions. 

Theatre adds vitality and variety to a community, and your tax-deductible donation helps to ensure that we can continue to thrive.
