Gallery Theater of West Chicago will hold auditions for The Man with Bogart's Face by Andrew J Fenady, directed by Gail Cannata.
Remember the good old days of radio-when people had to use their imaginations-when the mind was a stage? Those days are back-only better because you can SEE as well as HEAR radio programs. A man whose identity we never know has his face altered to look like Humphrey Bogart and is involved in a Maltese Falcon-type caper-like the old days when there were causes and dames and flags worth fighting for. And LAUGHS. Lots of LAUGHS. "a fast-moving story with action and staccato dialogue that literally bring Bogart to life.
