The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window
170 N. Dearborn Street Chicago
Lorraine Hansberry's rarely-produced second play, The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window, premiered just weeks before the 34-year-old writer succumbed to cancer in 1965. Now, Obie Award-winning director Anne Kauffman brings this impassioned drama back to life at Chicago's Goodman Theatre. Set in early 1960s Greenwich Village, the story revolves around the increasingly troubled marriage of Brustein, a writer, and his actress wife, Iris, as well as their circle of friends, after he begins to express political and social views that butt up against those of his Bohemian cohorts. Don't miss this rare chance to experience the once-in-a-generation voice of one of America's most admired playwrights, the first African-American woman ever to be produced on Broadway. Dominic Comperatore (A View From the Bridge) and Diane Davis (Golden Boy, Person of Interest) star as the couple.
