A seriously funny and personal look at the disease that affects millions of people each year, This Is Not a Cure for Cancer is a dramedy that tackles the way we live and the value of life through the lens of cancer. Collaboraction artistic director Anthony Moseley co-wrote the play in the aftermath of his father's battle with cancer, and the provocative, docu-drama work is a stirring piece that has universal understanding despite its personal origins.

I enjoyed both the music and the singing. The loud music may have been a metaphor for the desire of the voiceless to be heard. Although the "Numberless" has a modern day theme, I saw many paralells with the social uprisings of the 60's. All and all it was good entertainment but I would suggest coming dressed to stand for the entire performance!

About the Ticket Supplier: The New ColonyThe New Colony was founded by a group of young, professional actors, writers and directors in Chicago, dedicated to the creation and production of exciting, original theatrical experiences.
Having worked in and out of Chicago and after establishing their careers with honors such as writing scholarships, winning the World's Playwright Competition, and invitations to theater festivals around the country - including The New York International Fringe Festival where they have been recognized for Outstanding Musical (2006) and Best Music and Lyrics (2008), our founders decided to collaborate their efforts in the form of The New Colony.
Determined to capture Chicago's theatrical roots of risk-taking, innovative theater and story-telling, The New Colony sets out to create a theater experience that will welcome, engage and immerse our audiences; making them feel like they are a member of the New Colony community rather than just an anonymous observer.
