A contemporary adaptation of Oscar Wilde's classic novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, this unique production is performed promenade-style, where you follow the action and actors around the space, and features an intriguing blend of dance and dialogue. Dorian -- young, beautiful and aimless -- has just arrived in the big city, where local artists and critics have eagerly brought him into their fold. After a talented and frustrated painter named Basil Hallward crafts a gorgeous portrait of Dorian, the painting's young subject wishes to remain forever as lovely as this two-dimensional representation of him. And for many years -- through wild parties, brokenhearted lovers and occasional damage to the painting itself -- Dorian, growing steadily more wicked, does indeed remain flawlessly youthful. But what, if anything, will break this strange spell? With compelling choreography, acting and staging comes The House Theatre of Chicago's DORIAN, a modern spin on Wilde's rumination on youth and beauty. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Written by Chris Mathews, Jake Minton and Nathan Allen, directed by Nathan Allen, and presented by The House Theatre of Chicago.
The writers of The Sparrow have gone back in time to re-imagine the most daring story they have ever told. Dave DaVinci Saves the Universe tells the story of the world’s most famous scientist working against the clock to invent the only thing that can save his daughter’s life and his marriage; a time machine.
The House Theatre of Chicago shares a completely fresh version of an original favorite with new characters, sharper dialogue, a new design, more heartfelt comedy, and tighter twists than ever before. This giant leap forward in the life of an unpredictable, smart and amusing story of timeless love in the face of tragic loss is not to be missed!
