American Theater Company is a small, intimate theater, with seating on two sides of the stage. Not a bad seat in the house. Very good show. Only one small complaint: Perhaps it was an issue with the sound system, but at times the words to the songs were muddled and it was hard to follow the story. In the end, the actors were able to convey the meaning, even if I couldn't understand all the words. Play lasted 2 hours and 45 minutes with a 15 minute intermission, but the time passed very quickly.
East Village. 1989. Facing a brutal economy and a raging AIDS epidemic, a group of Bohemian artists struggle to find life, love, and art in New York’s East Village. Celebrated Broadway director David Cromer returns to Chicago with a powerful new take on Jonathan Larson’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning rock opera.
Continuing its tradition of taking insightful approaches to American musicals, American Theater Company has teamed up with About Face Theatre for the first time since Hedwig and the Angry Inch to bring _Rent _back to the Chicago stage.
