NATO is coming to Chicago this weekend, so we wanted to endorse this show about the 1968 Democratic National Convention. You can also check out Jordan Phelps, a young actor that The Qu interviewed last year. We are happy and proud that this young man continues to work, he is fantastic!
Dog & Pony Dog & Pony Theatre Company presents the world premiere of the devised promenade play with music The Whole World Is Watching in the Prince Charitable Trust Events Room upstairs at the Victory Gardens Biograph Theater, May 4-June 9.
The Whole World Is Watching focuses on the week of the August 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago when there were more than three million people in the city and more than three million stories about what really happened. Through a collage of stories from the viewpoints of police officers, journalists, clergy, workers, demonstrators, students, politicians and Yippies, The Whole World is Watching recalls the implications that the riots had on national politics.
Regular run is May 12 – June 9. Performances are Wednesdays-Saturdays at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $25 general admission, $15 for students and seniors. All previews plus Wednesday performances are pay-what-you-can. For tickets, call the box office at 773-871-3000, 773-871-0682 (TTY), 773-634-9874 (groups of 10 or more) or click the links above!
