OPENING: September 1 Clock Theater is Set To Open The Broadway in former Profiles Space
CLOCK THEATER TO OPEN THE BROADWAY
(FORMERLY PROFILES THEATRE)
PART OF THE PRIDE ARTS CENTER
Clock Theater will be the first theater company to make use of The Broadway, (formerly Profiles Theatre) at 4139 N. Broadway, Chicago, part of the Pride Arts Center
Artistic Director of Clock Theater, David Denman, was a company member of the National Pastime Theater which resided in the space for many years prior to Profiles moving in. Says Denman, “ It is very ironic that as a former resident of the space with National Pastime, my theater is returning to the space once again.”
Clock’s production of “Irrational Tales” includes a number of vignettes based on stories of terror. Included in the stories are “Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment” by Nathaniel Hawthorne, “The Gorgon” by Aston Clarke Smith, “A Diamond as Big as the Ritz” based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald and “Reflections.”
The production opens September 1 and runs to September 18 with performances on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets are $15.
Appearing in the production, which is produced and adapted by David Denman and directed by Lesley Fisher Chapman, are CJ Chapman, Jennifer Cheung, Amanda Forman, David Meldman, Sarah Mergener, Whitney Pipes and Mark West. Stage Manager is Amber Mandley, Costume Design by Arin Mulvaney, Lighting and Mask Design by Ben Dionysus, Sound Design by Sheri Tatar, Fight Choreography by Danielle Stahl and Scenic Design by David Denman.
