To locate The American Theater Company exit Irving Park Brown Line and walk to Lincoln Ave. Turn left on Lincoln Ave. and walk towards Martyr's'. There is a parking lot shared by Martyrs' and The American Theater Company. There is not a noted street sign for Bryon Ave. 10 minute walk

Theatre Seven of Chicago rents The American Theater. There was an undercurrent of insecticide in the building. If you have allergies or are sensitive to smells try to see this play at a different venue.

I did not understand why I was not acknowledged or questioned after arriving early and walking in and out of the building four times. Apparently patrons of a show that is not produced by The American Theater Company do not need to be acknowledged. This is not wise business practice for it would have encouraged me to want to attend other performances at this location.

Long and sweet. I like my plays short and dark. More "gee kids, lets do a play in the barn", less about women in Chicago. Needs to cut an hour of this 2 hour play.
