Big news hit the theaterwebs late yesterday afternoon: next spring, Robert Falls will direct Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy in The Iceman Cometh here at the Goodman! April 22 to June 10; be there.
[ Above: Dazzling show art; get excited!]
Meanwhile, our current production, Chinglish, is still going strong in the Albert and has been extended through July 31, which is good news for anyone who still hasn’t seen the show yet, as it’s been selling out on a nightly basis. After it closes here it’s headed to Broadway, so unless you’ll be spending your autumn in New York I’d advise you to see it now, in all of its original glory.
For now though, check out this week’s links!
