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
Gypsy jazz group lePercolateur consists of frontwoman Nicole Peterson-Pearce; Marielle deRocca-Serra on violin; Stacy McMichael on the upright bass; Sam Random, resident songwriter of the company’s songs “Dancing in the Kitchen” and “All I Want is You,” on guitar and vocals and Kevin Rush on lead guitar. This fresh, fun collection of local musicians endeavors to put a hip, current twist on a classic musical style and delivers to their crowds with spruced up standards and cleverly covered contemporary hits along with hours of entertainment that have them on their feet and singing along at each show.
Special guests: Stephen Lynerd on vibraphone & Zoey Witz on guitar!
Opening act: Lil’ Ricki & the Licorice Sticks
