Chicago’s history with disco music is complicated (need we mention the 1979 Disco Demolition Night at Comiskey Park?), but more than 40 years later, the beat lives on. Few performers captured the sound like Donna Summer, and this winter, Chicagoans can get their groove on to more than 20 of the legendary diva’s top hits in the thumping, bumping SUMMER: The Donna Summer Musical. Call it a guilty pleasure or just blame it on the boogie (we had to)—but from “Bad Girls” to the steamy “Love to Love You Baby” and “She Works Hard for the Money,” this production is a surefire way to heat up a cold February night. Feb. 12- 23, tickets $27-$100, James M. Nederlander Theatre
