Description

Following its smash hit productions of Come Back, Little Sheba and _The Price, _Shattered Globe Theatre concludes its 16th season with the Chicago premiere of Peter Parnell’s film noir-style thriller Hyde in Hollywood.

Everyone seems to have a secret in 1930s Hollywood, and the unrelenting gossip columnist Hollywood Confidential is determined to expose them all. Mr. Confidential especially has it in for Tinseltown’s leading director/actor, Julian Hyde. Beneath the veneer of Hyde’s celebrity status and fairytale marriage to his leading lady Lida Todd, he is concealing a truth that could destroy his reputation, his career and his actual romantic relationship—with press agent David Hogarth. Desperate to keep Confidential from going public with his secret, Hyde draws him into an epic battle in which the glitz of film and fame become deadly weapons.

This production is directed by Andrea J. Dymond, Literary Manager and Resident Director of the Victory Gardens Theater.

About the Ticket Supplier: Shattered Globe Theatre

Dedicated to the philosophy of ensemble, it is the mission of Shattered Globe Theatre to dissect, challenge, and revel in the American experiment; inspire social discourse by raising questions rather than espousing philosophy; stimulate artistic growth for and broaden the perspectives of both artist and audience; and push the boundaries of excellence in ensemble theatre. To this end, Shattered Globe Theatre brings its audiences fresh renditions of classic works and premiereproductions that celebrate new voices and innovative viewpoints.

Founded in 1991, Shattered Globe Theatre was born when a small group of Chicago theatre artists joined forces to stage a single production—Adam Langer’s Backstage Pass. Inspired by the positive reception of the show and the powerful dynamic experienced in their collaboration, the actors formed Shattered Globe and took up residence in a tiny storefront at 2856 N. Halsted Street. Since that time, Shattered Globe has produced nearly 50 plays, garnering 35 Joseph Jefferson wins and the acclaim of critics and audiences alike for such productions as Judgment at Nuremberg, Coyote on a Fence, High Life, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Manchurian Candidate and, most recently, The House of Blue Leaves and Dealer’s Choice. SGT presents an eclectic mix of shows that speak to our times and inspire social discourse, including world premieres by some of Chicago’s most promising playwrights, Chicago premieres of works by national and international writers, and new takes on some of America’s best-loved classics. The company remained in its original storefront until 1999 and is now a resident company of The Greenhouse Theater Center.
