So this is a review for the theatre, not the play. I always try and start my theatre reviews like this because I don't think Yelp is the place to review transient, moving productions.

I spent the second half of Chicago with my eyes peeled so I could see when the sneaky critter and stamp to scare it away before he came back over to my seat. Eep!
I did tell the staff...but it looks like other yelpers...more
