Please join us for the debut of Chicago's newest performance venue dedicated to solo performance, an intimate 55-seat theater tucked away inside one of the city's legendary Irish pubs. 


The Princess Strikes Back: One Woman's Search for the Space Cowboy of her Dreams

In 1997, 13-year-old Victoria Montalbano was introduced to her perfect man, Han Solo, and she’s been looking for him ever since. Watch her grow from awkward theatre kid to professional out of work actress while swiping her way through a galaxy far, far away!


Don't miss this opportunity to experience this critically acclaimed solo show that has been delighting fringe festival audiences across the country.



★★★★★ “…a consistently entertaining hour full of vivid description and emotional empathy…Her delivery is warm and real. And you don’t have to be a single woman to fall under her spell — her story has universal appeal for anyone whose life hasn’t gone according to plan, who has suffered the pangs of first love, who has struggled to find inner peace with choices made.” - Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel


“Her tightly-paced monologue interweaves her adoration for George Lucas’ space-opera saga with navigating the asteroid belt of unrequited love, from teenage crushes to her struggles as a heartbroken, ramen-broke performer in Chicago’s improv comedy scene...the Force is strong with this fresh, funny celebration of fangirldom.” - Seth Kubersky, Orlando Weekly


“It’s a funny, sexy, self-revealing visit…lots of laughs and a few tears.” - Carl F. Gauze, Ink1
