Parking is free just south of the theater. Beware, Roosevelt Road from Lake Shore Drive is a nightmare of construction and traffic. If you can take another route there do so or allow double the normal time to get there

The play was absolutely hilarious. All the actors played very believable characters. A play that the whole family would enjoy. The humor was clean and kept you interested and laughing for the whole 2 1/2 hours.

Description

Written By Larry Shue

Directed By Tim Gregory

This award-winning comedy classic is based on a devilishly clever idea, demonstrating what can happen when a group of devious characters must deal with a stranger who (they think) knows no English! The fact that he does fuels the non-stop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go ridiculously awry for the “bad guys” and the “good guys” emerge triumphant. A constant invitation to relax and laugh at the foolishness of life,_ The Foreigner_ has quickly become one of America’s favorite comedies!

This production is suitable for adult and teen audiences.
