“Ibsen In Chicago” at Seattle Repertory Theatre
February 21, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$16 – $59
From Seattle Rep:
In 1882, an unlikely ensemble of SCRAPPY SCANDINAVIAN IMMIGRANTS converge to put on a play in BOOMTOWN CHICAGO. As this ragtag group of new Americans rehearse a controversial new play written by their fellow countryman Henrik Ibsen, their various enmities and misunderstandings take on VAUDEVILLIAN PROPORTIONS. Bricklayer turned impresario Henning Folden has a chance to fulfill a dream, but first, he has to keep the real world at bay and get his cast to opening night in this WORLD PREMIERE COMEDY.
Runtime is approximately one hour and 40 minutes with no intermission.
Note: There will be brief partial nudity and explicit language throughout this production.
