Fable-ous!

February 19, 2017 - 1:00pm
02-11-2017 to 02-19-2017 - A new play inspired by Aesop's fables
By Chris Hainsworth
Directed by Heather Currie

Harrington T. Jordan was the fastest (and most famous) Hare that ever lived – so how did he end up losing his race against the Tortoise? The true story starts with a wager with a devious Mouse and ends in a madcap dash through the wilds of Lion Country with a fortune in endorsements and merchandising on the line. But the fix is in, and a simple footrace soon becomes something much more complicated (and silly) as traps and predators lie in wait around every corner. Forget what you think you know about the Tortoise and the Hare and take the time to make some new friends in a world premiere comedy that turns the world of Aesop’s fables on its ear.

Recommended for kids 5 and up. Children under 2 are not permitted.

Late Nite Catechism

February 19, 2017 - 1:00pm
02-11-2017 to 02-19-2017 -

Call it Carol Burnett meets Whoopi Goldberg. This interactive comedy is part catechism class, part stand-up routine. In the past 23 years, Late Nite Catechism has been performed in almost every major U.S. city, plus has done successful stints in Australia, England, Ireland, Canada, and Malaysia.

Ruling her classroom with an iron fist, Sister teaches her students – who happen to be the audience – everything she knows about saints, sin, heaven and hell…while dolling out rewards and reprimands with lightning speed.
The New York Times calls it, 'hilarious, well-written and inspired.' Jeffrey Lyons from TV’s Sneak Previews called Late Nite Catechism 'something to savor and enjoy....one of the most intimate, rewarding shows in town.'

Jim Lehrer and the Theater and Its Double and Jim Lehrer's Double

February 19, 2017 - 1:00pm
02-09-2017 to 02-19-2017 - In this new play by Mickle Maher, a sequel to Theater Oobleck’s 2007 hit The Strangerer, Jim Lehrer, the legendary news anchor and Presidential debate moderator, is now retired and sitting alone of a gloomy evening in his cavernous DC suburban home, when his double, Jim Lehrer the unsuccessful playwright, arrives home from the opening night of his first produced play.

The premiere of that play did not go well, and Jim Lehrer II fled the theater, chased across dark fields and streams by a violent audience strangely angered by the staging of his script. He now must convince his twin their lives are in danger, and to lock and barricade the front door to stem the imminent invasion. But something—or someone—keeps making odd noises from deep within the house.

A comic-gothic horror tale that relates the writings of Edgar Allan Poe and Antonin Artaud to the politics and theater of our day, Jim Lehrer and the Theater and Its Double and Jim Lehrer’s Double is a play unlike any other. The Chicago Reader calls it "ingenious, eccentric, quietly devastating" and says that actors Colm O'Reilly and Brian Shaw are "extraordinary."

Gloria

February 19, 2017 - 1:00pm
02-16-2017 to 02-19-2017 - A workplace nightmare paves the way for “sharp-toothed…whip-smart satire” (The New York Times) in Obie Award winner Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ dark comedy.

Style. Status. Success. A group of twentysomething editorial assistants are pursuing it all at one of New York’s most esteemed cultural magazines. When a seemingly normal day at the office turns out to be anything but, these cubicle captives and aspiring journalists recognize an opportunity to become the next “big thing.” But whose account is most valid, and to what lengths will each go to own the story? In this shrewd new comedy, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins skewers the cutthroat culture of modern media.

Goodman Theatre presents The Vineyard Theatre’s acclaimed world premiere production.

Please note this production contains scenes that may be disturbing. Intended for mature audiences.

Meet Sutter, a precocious boy learning what it means to be gay and black.

02-09-2017 to 02-19-2017 - Cymbeline by William Shakespeare Directed by Robert Kauzlaric

Shakespeare. You've heard of him. This play has all the vicious insults, bloody blades, cross-dressed ladies and compromised bedchambers you've come to expect from the man. But then things get nuts. It's a no-holds-barred epic, a dark fairy tale set off by a king's rash verdict and a princess who won't stand for her man's wrongful banishment. The acclaimed director of Lifeline Theatre's Hunger and Irish Theatre of Chicago's The White Road; recently seen onstage in our production of The Arsonists, makes his Strawdog directing debut.
