Theater in Chicago

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Join us at some of Chicago’s best theaters as we read and attend seven plays performed in various venues that could include Steppenwolf, Goodman, and Timeline. We will read each play at home and then discuss it in the classroom. During the week, we will see the play as a group, or participatns are welcome to see it on their own. Participants may also invite a guest to see the play with them. At the next study group session, we will compare and contrast the written play with the staged version. Participants will be asked to lead each discussion, with topics including themes, characters, acting style, and production. While the coordinators will purchase tickets for the group, each participant will be responsible for the ticket cost and for obtainingthe scripts. Tickets generally average about $35 - $40, and participants are only responsible for those tickets ordered through the study group. Participants must arrange their own transportation to the theaters, although car pools can be arranged, as needed. We also often gather for an optional dinner before the performance.
