👋 Hey, it's Monica. Over the weekend I saw the dynamic Goodman Theatre production of "Clyde's."

What's happening: Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage, the tasty, fast-paced show follows a kitchen staff of formerly incarcerated people working to get through life and create the perfect sandwich.

  • As a foodie with an interest in criminal justice, I found it gave me a lot to chew on for days.
  • If you have similar passions, you'll want to catch it before it closes Oct. 16. Tickets: $25.

Of note: WTTW Ch-11 launches a four-part series called "Permanent Punishment" next week about the restrictions that formerly incarcerated people in Illinois face as they try to rebuild their lives.
