OPENING: Dual ENGLISH-RUSSIAN Productions of THREE HOTELS at Athenaeum Theatre, Studio Two

Chi, IL LIVE Shows On Our Radar:


Bluebird Arts – Chicago's only English-Russian Theatre Company – proudly announces dual productions of Three Hotels by Jon Robin Baitz to continue its cross-cultural mission this summer and fall. Artistic Director Luda Lopatina Solomon will direct both productions.

Three Hotels (English Production)
By Jon Robin Baitz
Directed by Artistic Director Luda Lopatina Solomon
Previews begin August 9, 2016
August 12 – September 17, 2016
Thursdays-Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm
Athenaeum Theatre, Studio Two, 2936 N. Southport Ave., Chicago

Set in three different hotel rooms a husband and wife tell their story, separate and alone. Kenneth Hoyle, an American businessman, sells defective baby formula in third world markets. And his wife, Barbara, talks about him, their marriage, and the incident that made this story their reality. In a play that progresses from intellectual cynicism to heartbreaking honesty, Baitz reveals the emotional and physical wounds we all encounter in the face of adversity and heartbreak. Bluebird Arts’ production will feature Dave Belden (Kenneth Hoyle) and Jaimelyn Gray (Barbara Hoyle). The Production Team includes Ioana Manuela Rentea (Assistant Director), Carl Ulaszek (Lighting Design and Technical Direction), Brandon Reed (Sound Design), Bisa Peyankov (Costume Design), Meghan Principe (Hair and Makeup), and Rick Frederick (Set Design).
