I SAW YOU: 11th Smash Year!


Bruised Orange Theater Company’s original comedy experience I SAW YOU has been running since 2006, bringing real uncensored personal ads to Town Hall Pub every Wednesday.  Three actors introduce you to the real people of Chicago who are looking for love, companionship, and…some other stuff.  There’s NEW material every week in this humorous look at dating, relationships, technology, sex, and Chicago itself. 

I SAW YOU is a Chicago Reader Critic’s Choice - see and hear more about us below! No two shows are exactly the same, but every show is honest, unflinching and funny as hell.  Bring a date, bring some friends, grab a beer, and enjoy.


Where: Town Hall Pub, 3340 N. Halsted (See map below)  Red Line: Belmont.

When: Wednesdays, 8:00pm.  Show runs about 60 minutes

Admission: $5 cash
