Three million people are in Chicago in August 1968 with three million stories about the events that unfolded. Through a collage of viewpoints from police officers, journalists, clergy, and demonstrators, we visit the Democratic National Convention and the riots that ensued. New live music, projections, and a standing-room performance all result in a fast-paced look at a piece of Chicagoís history.
Please note that there will be street closures near the theater on June 9 due to Children's Memorial Hospital moving locations. Visit their site here for more information.
Anthony Apodaca, John Blick, Paige Collins, Audrey Flegel, Brittani Green, Jenny Lamb, Tyshaun Lang, Kristen Magee, Morgan Maher, Jordan Phelps, David Seeber, Jim Shinkle, and Dan Smeriglio. Maxwell Burnham, Hannah Kahn and Alee Spadoni serve as understudies.
