Description

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.
