Sandra Oh and team in rehearsal for Victory Gardens' "Death and the Maiden."

We’re looking forward to what Kokandy Productions does with Stephen Sondheim’s perky little musical about infamous historical murderers. If it’s anything like the company’s recent productions of The Last Five Years or Sweet Smell of Success, we’re in good hands. The show runs through Sunday, July 20.
Kokandy Productions at Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont, 773-904-7404 or online.
