Goodman Artistic Director Robert Falls directs Adam Rapp’s “sublime, gripping mystery” (The New York Times Critic’s Pick) in its first live production since the Tony Award-nominated Broadway run—starring Mary Beth Fisher and John Drea.
Creative writing professor Bella values her solitude but finds herself opening up to Christopher—a reclusive, mysterious freshman with lofty literary aspirations. As the two connect beyond the classroom, Bella realizes she must ask Christopher for an impossible favor. Their story unfolds to a stunning conclusion, blurring the lines between fiction, friendship and endings.
Technology, videography and stage production come together for the new Live series, Goodman Theatre’s next step towards resuming in-person performances. Accessible via multiple video cameras, each performance of three new productions—including two Chicago premieres and a major revival—are streamed live online for real-time consumption by audiences at home.
