London-born Michael Washington Brown brings his show "Black!" to Chicago's Athenaeum Theatre for a limited run. In this solo show, Brown plays characters from England, Africa, Jamaica and the United States to examine the "perspectives of various people from the Black global community" to understand their shared experiences and those that differentiate them. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 20, at the Athenaeum Theatre, 2936 N. Southport Ave., Chicago. $25. (773) 935-6875 or athenaeumtheatre.org.
