"Describe the Night" "Truth, history and storytelling are always in conflict with the state," says Rajiv Joseph, the playwright behind "Describe the Night," coming to Steppenwolf Theatre this week. To describe the play is challenging — it weaves together 90 years of real history and fictionalized history in Russia, Poland and East Germany, with the story coming into focus as mysteries unravel and connections emerge. "Describe the Night" won an Obie Award for Best New American Play in 2018. We talk with Joseph ahead of the play's Chicago premiere. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Black-centric company Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, named after the modern-dance icon who ran the company from its founding in 1958 until his death in 1989, makes its annual tour stop, bearing dances aimed at both longtime fans and Ailey first-timers. The six performances cover four different programs with little overlap, some focused on new work (March 8 and 10), and some playing the hits (an all-Ailey program at the matinees on March 11 and 12). Every program ends, like a well-known book, in "Revelations," the company's signature closer. Auditorium Theatre. March 8-12. "Layalina" Traveling through the various phases of new-play incubation at the Goodman Theatre, "Layalina" now hatches as a full production. The play refracts the experience of the playwright, Martin Yousif Zebari, moving from Baghdad to Skokie with his family — first showing the title character, Layal, and her family in Baghdad in 2003, preparing to leave, and then again in the U.S. in 2020. The five-actor cast play different roles in the different time periods, passing two of the roles, including Layal, off to different actors. The play — both a world premiere and the first ever produced by the Goodman by a Southwest Asian or North African playwright — explores queerness, grief and the question of home through the immigrant experience. Goodman Theatre. March 3-April 2. 'Hilma' at the Chicago European Union Film Festival Chicago European Union Film Festival The annual Chicago European Union Film Festival at the Gene Siskel Film Center parades a month of films from member nations of the eponymous economic partnership. (Organizers have taken the name of the festival quite literally and no longer slate films from the Brexit-ed U.K.) Similar to the way the Academy Awards accept one submission per country for the longlist for Best International Feature Film, the Siskel tours 23 countries, screening (mostly) one from each, including several appearing in the Oscars list. Ireland's representative in both, "The Quiet Girl," made the list of five nominees for the award. For the opening-night party, hosted by the Honorary Consulate of Sweden, "Hilma," a film about the pioneering abstract painter Hilma af Klint, screens with actors Lena Olin and Tora Hallström — who are mother and daughter in real life — in attendance. Gene Siskel Film Center. March 1-31.

Symphony Center. 3 p.m., March 5. Opening in Chicago • "Annie" has been around a long time — although not quite as long as you might think for a show that has a song called "We'd Like to Thank You, Herbert Hoover" — so long that the director of this Broadway touring production, Jenn Thompson, played the orphan named Pepper in the original Broadway cast. Cadillac Palace Theatre. March 7-19. • A walk-through artwork titled "Solstice," inspired by the alignment of the solar system, brings its LED rectangles and mirrors for a temporary installation. Navy Pier. March 1-April 16. On sale • When "Hamilton" closed out its 3.5-year open run in Chicago in January 2020, the producers swore it was still selling plenty of tickets, and that the closing was keeping to the showbiz principle to always leave them wanting more. Well, apparently enough people wanted more that it's returning in the fall — closing date still unannounced — and you can buy tickets in blocks of 10, or more, starting now. Nederlander Theatre. Opens Sept. 13. Extended • "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill," the cabaret show starring Alexis J.
