Ceres finally opens this weekend -- that's right, Easter weekend. It was either that or compete with an even more sacred holiday, St. Pat's.
Ripped from today's headlines, Ceres is the story of an elite, secretive unit of a venerable Chicago brokerage firm, under fire from an ambitious attorney general (one Stewart A. Spritzer). As the investigation unfolds, watch as this tight-knit crew descends into a spiral of bitterness, recriminations and betrayal.
We preview this Friday at 8 (10 bucks), have an opening gala Saturday at 8 (30 bucks includes admission, plus drinks, food and after-party), and the "regular" run begins Sunday at 7 ($20). From there, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through April 26.
