Award-winning Chicago stage veteran Roslyn Alexander fills the fascinating shoes of fearless activist Emma Goldman in this new solo drama that explores the passions behind the controversial figure's political agitation and the price she was willing to pay for it. A charismatic speaker and organizer, Goldman threatened the turn-of-the-century status quo with her liberal views on social issues and women's rights, but became infamous as an anarchist who advocated free love and who was jailed several times for demonstrating contraceptives, inciting to riot and opposing the draft. Dennis Zacek directs for the ShPIeL Theatre. Learn More

The production was wonderful, and in particular the sets and costuming. All of the cast members were spot on, voices strong and full of enthusiasm. I cried twice (if that's a measure). The only negative is the small audience. NightBlue and the cast and crew worked so hard to put this production out there. It deserves bigger audiences and better recognition.
Little Women: The Musical, based on Louisa May Alcott’s classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel, focuses on the four March sisters — brassy, tomboy aspiring writer Jo, romantic Meg, pretentious Amy, and kind-hearted Beth — and their beloved Marmee, at their home in Concord, Massachusetts while the family patriarch is away serving as a Union Army chaplain during the Civil War. Intercut with the vignettes in which their lives unfold are several recreations of the melodramatic short stories Jo writes in her attic studio, put to a musical score with lyrics by Mindi Dickstein and music by Jason Howland.
