Q&A: Playwright Todd Kreidler

Playwright Todd Kreidler’s stage adaptation of the film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner was produced by Washington DC’s Arena Stage in 2013. The production’s dramaturg, Linda Lombardi, spoke with Todd just as preview performances were about to begin.

A Wonderful 2017 Gala!

We had a ball at Court’s 2017 Gala, where we celebrated Founding Artistic Director Nick Rudall and took a behind the scenes look at the making of the musical Gypsy!

Q&A: Timothy Edward Kane

Timothy Edward Kane is no stranger to the stages and the classrooms at the University of Chicago. He returned to teaching this spring with a master class in acting, where he shared his experiences of performing classic roles and brought his students into the Harvey rehearsal process.

Shining a Light on Hidden Gems: Court’s Spotlight Reading Series

The Spotlight Reading Series is the brainchild of Ron OJ Parson, Court’s Resident Artist. Ron believes that the classic canon should include writers of color, and wanted to bring classic but rarely seen plays to a younger audience, and to the community at large.

The Improbable Life of Mary Chase

Mary Chase lived a raucous, improbable life. Born Mary McDonough in Denver in 1906, she joked that her family’s home “was not quite on the wrong side of the tracks, but the noise of the trains reached it.”

Donors Make a Difference: Judy Chernick

Judy Chernick’s relationship with Court dates back to the days when the company performed in Hutchinson Court on the University of Chicago campus. A season ticket subscriber since the early 1970s, Judy has been a donor for just as long, finding the connection between being a supporter and an audience member a natural fit.

Director Devon de Mayo is here to make you laugh.

“I just believe in joy, and I think it’s imperative as theatre artists to bring it to the stage, to hear audiences laugh, and to feel a sense of community through that laughter,” she says.
