The Cabinet, Red Moon Theatre, 1463 W. Hubbard, through June 5. Now extended and moved to a new venue, this exquisite objet d'art is a faithful puppetry rendering of the great expressionist silent film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. It's—well—mesmerizing. JA

Lost Land, Steppenwolf Theatre, through June 5. The Vinci cafe up the street from the 'wolf has tokaj ( tokai ) on its wine list, so let's toast the aristocrats who suffer so bravely for its sake in Stephen Jeffrey's play, and to the return of homeboy John Malkovich. MSB

Stardust, Griffin Theatre at the Theatre Building, through June 26. A sensitive and literate adaptation and spot-on direction combine to make this adaptation of Neil Gaiman's grown-up fairy tale an utterly magical outing. RR

Silk, Goodman Theatre, through June 5. It may be the same old story—stuffy European male goes gaga over exotic Japanese female ( or his own romantic fantasies of same ) —but Mary Zimmerman tells it with elegant solemnity and exquisite grace. MSB

— By Jonathan Abarbanel, Mary Shen Barnidge and Rick Reed
