Lookingglass Theatre

Lookingglass Theatre Company announces a one-night watch party of Eastland: An Original Musical Watch Party, Thursday, August 20 at 7pm (Central), a free online public fundraiser of the acclaimed production in support of Lookingglass Theatre Company. As the next offering in the Chicago Stories initiative, Lookingglass invites audiences to revisit a relatively unknown piece of history that unfolded in the heart of the City. After the show, join creative team members Andrew White and Andre Pluess for a post-show conversation.

Since Eastland premiered on our stage in 2012, audiences have consistently expressed their desire to see this cathartic show again. Lookingglass is honored to revive, for one night only, this original musical about Chicagoans facing an historic challenge with tenacity, bravery, and hope. This virtual event will be streamed on Lookingglass Theatre's YouTube and Facebook.
