Lookingglass Theatre Company postpones Lucy and Charlie's Honeymoon

Lookingglass Theatre announced that the World Premiere of Lucy and Charlie's Honeymoon will be postponed until the fall due to the current surge in COVID-19 cases for the health and safety of our audience, actors, staff, and crew.

Lucy and Charlie's Honeymoon, a musical romp featuring original country music and folk songs, is composed and written by Artistic Associate Matthew C. Yee in his playwriting debut. Postponing this new work allows Lookingglass to continue nurturing both playwright and text by supporting their development and to secure a launch point that also gives the audience an opportunity to return to the theater without hesitation.

"Our Artistic Associate, Matt Yee, has been working on this show for years...we want to do it at a time when this fantastic musical can get the audiences it deserves," says Artistic Director Heidi Stillman. "We also want our artists, creative team, and staff to be safe while creating the show."

Lookingglass Theatre is an ensemble-based company composed of generative artists and is choosing to use this time to uphold the intensive, often unseen, but critically important process of supporting artists who are developing work for the future. Over the next few months, Lookingglass will proceed with gglassworks, a play development program for new works, and continue to expand the short film project, 50 Wards: A Civic Mosaic. 50 Wards is an ambitious multimedia series that weaves a dazzling tapestry of hometown Chicago experiences, the first five of which are available to watch for free on their website.
