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

Stage-production of classic movie/story of proving that Kris Kringle is Santa Claus. Theater is intimate--five rows of seats, stadium style, so all can see stage well. Actors were superb. Clever method of changing scenes by having cast members singing Christmas carols during scenery changes. My wife and I both enjoyed immensely.

A wonderful family oriented event. Even if you don't bring your children, you can relive your own childhood with this wonderful performance. I will definitely try to catch it again next year...it really put me in the holiday spirit.

Miracle on 34th Street
By Patricia DiBenedetto, Will Snyder and John Vreeke
Adaptation of the story by Valentine Davies and Screenplay by George Seaton
In this inspired American fable, a department store Santa Claus claims to be the real Kris Kringle, as he tries to bring the wonder of Christmas into the lives of a skeptical mother and a precocious daughter. Based on the classic film and incorporating traditional holiday music, Miracle on 34th Street is a celebration of the magic of imagination. The perfect holiday outing for the entire family, this production is also a wonderful opportunity to introduce young children to live theatre.
