Turns out, every Wednesday from 5 to 6 p.m., these three friends put on a new skit atop the four-story parking garage for the Brown Line passengers who pass by.
On this particular Wednesday, the actors were indeed performing an original skit about Frankenstein and a mad scientist.
"Look at me, look me in the eyes Frankenstein," said the actor playing the mad scientist, during a performance. (Of course, no one on the el could hear the words, but the actors' actions pretty much explained the scene.)
"Argh, argh, argh!" said Frankenstein.
The three actors go by the name of CTA Theater, and they've been performing for riders for six months, every single week, just to make people happy. Riders who catch their show say they love the performances, no matter how short. Link -Thanks, Jeff!
