In the Albert Theatre

A Co-Production with Dallas Theater Center
Familia, amor and tradición are at the heart of this hilarious and heartwarming new comedy about the freedom to dream big. Lucha spends her days caring for her ailing mother, but longs to shake up her 1970s home life. When a forgotten record album sparks her mother’s memory, Lucha and her cousin strike upon a radical idea: to create an all-female mariachi band. Infused with live mariachi music, this “big-hearted, musical tug at the heartstrings,” (Denver Post) reveals how music and love can make just about anything possible.

Led by Artistic Director Robert Falls and Executive Director Roche Schulfer, the theater’s artistic priorities include new play development (more than 150 world or American premieres), large scale musical theater works and reimagined classics. Artists and productions have earned two Pulitzer Prizes, 22 Tony Awards and more than 160 Jeff Awards, among other accolades. The Goodman is the first theater in the world to produce all 10 plays in August Wilson’s “American Century Cycle.” Its longtime annual holiday tradition A Christmas Carol, now in its fourth decade, has created a new generation of theatergoers in Chicago. The Goodman also frequently serves as a production and program partner with national and international companies and Chicago’s Off-Loop theaters.
As a cultural and community organization invested in quality, diversity and community, Goodman Theatre is committed to using the art of theater for a better Chicago. Using the tools of the theatrical profession, the Goodman’s Education and Engagement programs aim to develop generations of citizens who understand the cultures and stories of diverse voices. The Goodman’s Alice Rapoport Center for Education and Engagement is the home of these programs, which are offered free of charge for Chicago youth—85% of whom come from underserved communities—schools and life-long learners.

Goodman Theatre was founded by William O. Goodman and his family in honor of their son Kenneth, an important figure in Chicago’s cultural renaissance in the early 1900s. The Goodman family’s legacy lives on through the continued work and dedication of Kenneth’s family, including Albert Ivar Goodman, who with his late mother, Edith-Marie Appleton, contributed the necessary funds for the creation of the new Goodman center in 2000.

Today, Goodman Theatre leadership also includes the distinguished members of the Artistic Collective: Brian Dennehy, Rebecca Gilman, Henry Godinez, Dael Orlandersmith, Steve Scott, Kimberly Senior, Chuck Smith, Regina Taylor, Henry Wishcamper and Mary Zimmerman.

OPENING: Quixote: On the Conquest of Self at Writers Theatre 9/27-12/17/17

Chi, IL LIVE Shows On Our Radar: 

Writers Theatre announces first Gillian Theatre production of 2017/18 Season
Quixote: On the Conquest of Self
After Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes
Written by Mόnica Hoth and Claudio Valdés Kuri
With English translation by Georgina Escobar
Directed by Claudio Valdés Kuri
September 27 – December 17, 2017

Casting revealed for the complete 2017/18 Season

Writers Theatre Artistic Director Michael Halberstam and Executive Director Kathryn M. Lipuma announce the first Gillian Theatre production of the 2017-2018 season – Quixote: On the Conquest of Self, written by Mόnica Hoth and Claudio Valdés Kuri, English Translation by Georgina Escobar, directed by Kuri, and featuring Henry Godinez as Don Quixote, September 27 – December 17, 2017.

Created by acclaimed Mexican director and internationally-recognized artist Claudio Valdés Kuri and featuring a virtuoso performance, this engaging and creative interpretation of the classic novel by Miguel de Cervantes transports audiences between time periods: from the fascinating universes created by Cervantes to the parallel realities of our current world.

Here at ChiIL Live Shows, we're eagerly anticipating the opening this week of Quixote: On the Conquest of Self, followed by Oscar Wilde’s clever comedy of manners The Importance of Being Earnest directed by Michael Halberstam and featuring Anita Chandwaney, Shannon Cochran, Aaron Todd Douglas, Alex Goodrich, Steve Haggard, Rebecca Hurd, Jennifer Latimore and Ross Lehman.

Eugene O’Neill’s masterpiece A Moon for the Misbegotten, directed by William Brown, will feature James DeVita, A.C. Smith and Bethany Thomas, with additional casting still to be announced.

The final production in the Alexandra C. and John D. Nichols Theatre, Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Buried Child, directed by Kimberly Senior, will feature, Shannon Cochran, Allen Gilmore, John Hoogenakker, Arti Ishak, Shane Kenyon, Mark Montgomery and Larry Yando. 

The Chicago Premiere of Lydia Diamond’s Smart People, which closes the season in the Gillian Theatre and is directed by Hallie Gordon, will feature Kayla Carter, Erik Hellman and Deanna Myers with additional casting still to be announced.

The 2017-2018 Season marks Writers Theatre’s second full season in the company’s award-winning new home at 325 Tudor Court in Glencoe, designed by Studio Gang Architects. Productions will be presented in two spaces in the theater complex including the 255-seat Alexandra C. and John D. Nichols Theatre as well as the Gillian Theatre, a 50 to 99-seat flexible theatre space.

From its very first year, Writers Theatre has brought quality and excellence to the stage while maintaining the company’s hallmark intimacy. The last 25 years have seen unprecedented growth in both the artistic and business arenas as the company has garnered national acclaim and recognition, marked by the celebrated opening of the Theatre’s new facility in February of 2016. With a longstanding reputation for consistent artistic excellence and with strong ties to the community, Writers Theatre has built an award-winning repertoire and serves as a vital and highly regarded company in the Chicagoland theatre community.

“I am so excited to announce our casting for the 2017/2018 season,” said Artistic Director Michael Halberstam. “Furthermore, I couldn’t be happier to welcome Claudio Valdez-Kuri to Writers Theatre, helming his original adaptation of Don Quixote.  I first met Claudio at a National Theatre Conference and was inspired to travel to see his work in Mexico City where he had staged a production of Life’s a Dream by Calderon.  To be able to bring him to Glencoe is the fulfillment of a three-year dialogue and it will definitely have been worth the wait!”

“We have a marvelous line up of actors readying themselves to bring the season to life - a bounty of familiar faces as well as a host of actors new to the company.  2017/2018 promises to be a season like none before - taking full advantage of our new venue while paying homage to the foundations upon which it was built.”

Season Packages are available at the Box Office, 325 Tudor Court, Glencoe, 847-242-6000 and

Henry Godinez as Don Quixote 

US Premiere
After Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes
Written by Mόnica Hoth and Claudio Valdés Kuri
English Translation by Georgina Escobar
Directed by Claudio Valdés Kuri
September 27 – December 17, 2017
Press Opening: Wednesday, October 4 at 7:30 pm
The Gillian Theatre | 325 Tudor Court, Glencoe

Featuring Henry Godinez as Don Quixote.

This engaging and creative interpretation of the classic novel by Miguel de Cervantes transports audiences between time periods: from the fascinating universes created by Cervantes to the parallel realities of our current world. Along the way, the universally beloved dreamer Don Quixote helps bring new meaning to our triumphs and defeats, reawakening our forgotten desires and celebrating the joys of great literature.

Created by acclaimed Mexican director and internationally recognized artist Claudio Valdés Kuri and featuring a virtuoso performance in WT’s intimate Gillian Theatre, Quixote: On the Conquest of Self will immerse audiences in the story of this eccentric idealist and self-proclaimed knight errant, as they accompany him on a fantastic adventure filled with great humor and poignancy.

Written by Oscar Wilde
Directed by Artistic Director Michael Halberstam
November 8 – December 23, 2017
Press Opening: Wednesday, November 15 at 7:30 pm
Alexandra C. and John D. Nichols Theatre | 325 Tudor Court, Glencoe

The cast includes: Anita Chandwaney (Miss Prism), Shannon Cochran (Lady Bracknell), Aaron Todd Douglas (Rev. Canon Chasuble), Alex Goodrich (Jack Worthing), Steve Haggard (Algernon Moncreif), Rebecca Hurd (Cecily Cardew), Jennifer Latimore (Gwendolyn Fairfax) and Ross Lehman (Lane/Merriman).

One of the cleverest comedies by one of the greatest writers in the English language, The Importance of Being Earnest introduces us to Jack and Algernon, two charming bachelors who are each living a double life, aided by a fictional alter ego called “Ernest.” But when they fall truly in love with a pair of proper young women, will they be able to bring an end to the charade and convince the formidable Lady Bracknell that they are suitable candidates for marriage? After all, “the one charm about marriage is that it makes a life of deception absolutely necessary for both parties.”

Artistic Director Michael Halberstam brings his talent for refreshing the classics to this effervescent comedy of manners. Filled with Wilde’s sparkling wit, piercing social satire and trademark wordplay, this well-loved classic is certain to delight this holiday season!

Written by Eugene O’Neill
Directed by William Brown
February 7 – March 18, 2018
Press Opening: Wednesday, February 14 at 7:30 pm
Alexandra C. and John D. Nichols Theatre | 325 Tudor Court, Glencoe

The cast includes: James DeVita (Jim), A.C. Smith (Phil) and Bethany Thomas (Josie). The roles of Mike Hogan and Stedman Harder are yet to be announced.

In 1920s rural Connecticut, Phil Hogan cobbles together a living on rented farmland that he hopes to someday own outright, when his landlord Jim Tyrone comes into his inheritance. Hogan has driven away his three sons, but his towering daughter Josie understands her father and can hold her own. When the two learn that the land may be sold out from under them, they concoct a plan to save it that ultimately reveals the secret desires that two lonely souls have kept hidden for years.

This bittersweet elegy from four-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and Nobel laureate Eugene O’Neill offers a moving and powerful exploration of humanity at its basest and most beautiful.  Directed by WT Resident Director William Brown (Company, Doubt: A Parable, The Liar, A Little Night Music and many more), this soaring powerhouse of a play is simultaneously intimate and epic, touching on themes of desire, family and the things we sacrifice for those we love.

Written by Lydia Diamond
Directed by Hallie Gordon
March 21 – June 10, 2018
Press Opening: Wednesday, March 28 at 7:30 pm
The Gillian Theatre | 325 Tudor Court, Glencoe

The cast includes Kayla Carter (Valerie Johnston), Erik Hellman (Brian White) and Deanna Myers (Ginny Yang) with the role of Jackson Moore still to be announced.

Four intelligent, attractive and opinionated young urban professionals—a doctor, an actress, a psychologist, and a neurobiologist studying the human brain’s response to race—search for love, success, and identity while also attempting to navigate the intricacies of racial and sexual politics. This whip-smart new play taps into current cultural conversation in an enthralling and provocative way, taking on deep questions of the nature of prejudice with razor sharp wit.

Staged in WT’s intimate Gillian Theatre, this sexy, serious and fiercely funny new play explores the inescapable nature of racism and other tricky topics with rapid fire dialogue, shattering assumptions about our culture’s ingrained attitudes of racism, sexism and classism. You’re sure to be captivated by one of the smartest new plays of its time!

Written by Sam Shepard
Directed by Kimberly Senior
May 9 – June 17, 2018

On a cross-country trip from New York to the west coast, Vince and his girlfriend Shelly decide to make a stop at his grandparents’ rural Illinois home. But when they arrive, neither his grandparents, Dodge and Halie, nor his father Tilden and uncle Bradley seem to recognize or remember him. As Vince searches for answers, truths begin to emerge that reveal a deep corrosion of this fragmented family living in a forgotten America.

This Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece will be newly invigorated for the WT stage by Resident Director Kimberly Senior (Hedda Gabler, The Diary Of Anne Frank, Marjorie Prime, The Scene), drawing audiences deeply into the story of a family fighting to come to grips with an America that may have left them behind.

The new facility, which was recently recognized with LEED Gold Certification for sustainability initiatives, has allowed the Theatre to continue to grow to accommodate its audience, while maintaining its trademark intimacy, resonating with and complementing the Theatre’s neighboring Glencoe community, adding tremendous value to Chicagoland and helping to establish the North Shore as a premier cultural destination.
