Review from Sonia Nahmod

Review from Pat C.

Best show I've seen in a long time! Energetic, thought-provoking, and roll-in-the-aisles funny! The very talented cast didn't miss a beat. Fabulous!

More Information


Fresh from a popular and extended Off-Broadway run at the acclaimed Roundabout Theater in NYC, this quick-witted and timely comedy is “Ugly Betty” meets "Election.” Even though they go to the same school, misfits Solomon, Diwata and Howie have never met. But when a shocking scandal involving one of their teachers brings them together through an unexpected chain of events, they realize three voices are stronger than one. And since their school has no speech and debate squad, maybe this is their chance to be heard at last – by the school and even the world.

This is the first regional production of this show following its hit Off-Broadway run.  It also marks the Chicago directorial debut of PJ Paparelli, Artistic Director of ATC and creator of Columbinus, recently seen at Raven Theatre.  The show features ATC Ensemble Member Cheryl Graeff.
