the plays

This September, ATC’s production of columbinus will travel to ArtsEmerson in Boston, Massachusetts. The opportunity to share this important play with the East Coast is an honor for both ATC and you, our loyal supporters. Your efforts in the Voices Campaign made columbinus happen. We are so grateful.

In November, the season continues with our annual production of It's a Wonderful Life: The Radio Play. Artistic Director PJ Paparelli will be directing and bringing some new ideas to our beloved holiday tradition.

In the winter, ATC will present the Chicago premiere of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize Finalist Sons of the Prophet by Stephen Karam, author of Speech & Debate. This hysterically funny and deeply personal play explores a working-class Lebanese-American family as it deals with an unfortunate series of events that lead to both crisis and healing.

In the spring, Hair co-author Jim Rado will bring to Chicago a restored script for the rock musical Hair. This reimagined version has never before been produced, merging the psychedelic explorations of sex, drugs, and rock & roll with a deep desire for social change that embodied 1967.

Finally, this fall, ATC will produce The Wizard of Oz: The Radio Play in a one-weekend event for Membership subscribers only! ATC family members can experience this American classic performed as a 1940's radio play.

from the Artistic Director

Dear Member of the ATC Family,

I’m pleased to announce American Theater Company’s 29th Season!

The success of this season’s critically-acclaimed production of columbinus has literally transformed our company this year and has set the stage for ATC's first national tour. This September, ATC’s production of columbinus will travel to ArtsEmerson in Boston, Massachusetts. The opportunity to share this important play with the East Coast is an honor for both ATC and you, our loyal supporters. Your efforts in the Voices Campaign last fall made columbinus happen. We are so grateful.

In November, the season continues with our annual production of It's a Wonderful Life: The Radio Play. Over the years I have been watching in the wings, and this year, I will be directing and bringing some new ideas to our beloved holiday tradition.

In the winter, ATC will present the Chicago premiere of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize Finalist Sons of the Prophet by Stephen Karam, author of Speech & Debate. This hysterically funny and deeply personal play explores a working-class Lebanese-American family as it deals with an unfortunate series of events that lead to both crisis and healing.

In the spring, co-author Jim Rado and I will bring to Chicago a restored script for the rock musical Hair. This reimagined version has never before been produced, merging the psychedelic explorations of sex, drugs, and rock & roll with a deep desire for social change that embodied 1967.

Finally, this fall, ATC will produce The Wizard of Oz: The Radio Play in a one-weekend event for subscribers only! ATC family members can experience this American classic performed as a 1940's radio play.

And on a personal note...

I deeply appreciate the patience and understanding that you have shown ATC this season. We had a series of unexpected successes and surprises that forced us to change our schedule. In order to continue bringing you the best cutting edge productions, we recognize your and our need for flexibility. We also know that almost 90% of you also support ATC with a tax-deductible donation throughout the year. This season ATC announces a new membership program that provides you with the most affordable ticket options and exciting benefits for charitable giving. All of this is to both thank you for your support and make your theatre-going experience as convenient and flexible as possible. I think you'll be very pleased.

I look forward to seeing you at Speech & Debate in May. Thank you again for believing in American Theater Company.

Your Artistic Director,

PJ
