The play surpassed our expectations and is well worth the ticket price but we questioned the timing and frequency of the full nudity at times throughout the performance. While the actors were attractive to look at, the fact that they were completely nude at times did not seem to fit into the flow of the scene.
Choreographed and Arranged by Derek Van Barham
Ensemble: Erik Strebig, James Nedrud, Sarah Goldberg, Karen Vance, Carmen Molina, Christopher Young
Authors: Richard Siken, Alex Dimitrov, Sylvia Plath, Sharon Olds, Thom Gunn, Shakespeare, Walt Whitman and more
About the Ticket Supplier: The National Pastime Theater Ensemble
The National Pastime Theater strives to fill thousands of empty theater seats with generations of new theater audience, to stop this audience dead in their comfortable tracks and spur them to take an active role in their neighborhoods, communities and world.
Live theater must grab all generations and drag them-perhaps kicking and screaming-into an active role in our world.
Chicago is a perfect location for the type of theater that The National Pastime Theater Ensemble creates. We push ourselves and our audience to the limit. We aspire to bring people into the work, not just into the theater: we create terror, awe and strike down apathy. We sell not just tickets, we enable dreams.
