I'm delighted to announce that we have dates and a venue for "The Last Unicorn"!!!
We will be performing at City Lit Theater, 1020 W Bryn Mawr Ave, on the north side of Chicago. Those of you who have been following Promethean's work will be familiar with it; all of our mainstage productions for seasons two and three (including the upcoming Measure for Measure) have gone up there. For those of you not familiar, it's a lovely, intimate venue (that nevertheless seats roughly 100) on the second floor of the Edgewater Presbyterian church in (of course) the Edgewater neighborhood. It's very near the Bryn Mawr Red Line el stop, and easily reached by Lake Shore Drive by car. As a company we have a very strong relationship with City Lit; like me they're also very fond of doing stage adaptations of literature and I encourage you to check their site out.
And now for the dates:
October 16, 2009 through November 14, 2009
Thursdays and Fridays at 8 p.m.
Saturdays at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Sundays at 3 p.m.
Official Opening Night: Saturday, October 17 at 8 p.m. (10/16 is a preview)
(There is no Saturday matinee on 10/17)
Additional Press Performance: Monday, October 19 at 7 p.m.
Tickets won't be on sale until later this year (probably not until Measure for Measure closes) but now that we can say when and where, you'll be hearing a lot more about the production. Be sure to keep checking back here at The Last Uniblog for updates!
Aren't you excited? I know I am.
