ACT OUT OPENING: Chicago Premiere Reverb at Redtwist
Here at ChiIL Live Shows we're looking forward to Reverb and can't wait to check it out. They had me at darkly comic... Redtwist is one of our local favs and they consistently impress with high caliber offerings in their intimate black box space.
By Leslye Headland
Directed by Jonathan Berry
Opens at Redtwist Theatre Saturday, May 18, at 3pm
Redtwist announces the Chicago premiere of Reverb, a darkly comic, brutal dissection of the deadly force of wrath in the playwright's cycle of the Seven Deadly Sins
Featuring Redtwist company member and two-time, Jeff Award-winner, Peter Oyloe
Jeff-Award winning director, Jonathan Berry, directs the Chicago premiere of Reverb, the story of a rising young musician and his girlfriend/muse as they try to clear the decks of their own dysfunctional pasts, while the reverberations keep these soulmates locked in a vicious maze of loving tenderness and mortal combat.
