Profiles Theatre announces schedule changes
Sep 1, 2011


Profiles TheatreProfiles Theatre announces new dates for the run of A Behanding in Spokane by Martin McDonagh, directed by Steppenwolf ensemble member Rick Snyder. Please note changes in the previously announced dates: Previews are October 16-20, 2011 with the opening on Friday, October 21 at 8pm. The production runs though December 4, 2011 at Profiles Theatre, 4147 N. Broadway in Chicago.

A Behanding in Spokane, McDonagh's first play set in America, received its world premiere on Broadway in 2010 starring Christopher Walken as Carmichael. For the Broadway version, the age of the character was changed to match the age of the actor, now in his middle 60s. Profiles' production returns the character to McDonagh's originally intended age, featuring Profiles ensemble member Darrell W. Cox in the role.

Profiles Theatre rescheduled A Behanding in Spokane as Darrell W. Cox recovers from two emergency surgeries for a detached retina.

Profiles will open its second show of the 2011-2012 season, the World premiere of Assisted Living by Deirdre O'Connor, at the company's alternative venue The Second Stage, 3408 N. Sheffield. Previews for Assisted Living are November 4 - November 9 with the press opening on November 10, 2011. The production runs through December 18, 2011. Directed by Profiles Artistic Director Joe Jahraus, the production features guest artists Sean Bradley, Shannon Hollander and Stacy Stoltz.
