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
A kooky and spooky journey into the macabre, Macabaret is a collection of humorous songs, which twist towards the morbid. Murderous spouses, horror films, evil cows, supermodels and global warming are just a few of the things parodied by a “Corpse de Cabaret” of the undead. Porchlight Music Theatre presented the world premiere of this original revue in 1995 and presents a revised edition for 2009. This marks the 15th Anniversary of both the musical Macabaret and Porchlight Music Theatre Chicago.
“Porchlight is proud to present the return of Macabaret, resurrecting a show popular with our audiences and perfect for the Halloween season,” comments Artistic Director L. Walter Stearns. “Critics and audiences praised Porchlight’s 2005 version. We present this devilishly delightful musical revue as part of our 15th anniversary celebration and as testament to the fun and well-crafted work that we have presented over the course of those fifteen seasons.”
