Annual League Gala
Our Annual Gala will take place on Monday, May 20, 2019 to support the League in our mission to sustain a thriving theatre industry.
Most of us consider Chicago some kind of home. We decided to try producing one of our plays here and it was welcomed. So we stayed. We feel like Chicago holds promise, space, tremendous talent, and a hunger for new things.
Our one-woman show, Juliet, which has performed over 200 times in the U.S. and internationally, including Jerusalem, Los Angeles, Budapest, a woman’s prison, Bratislava, New York, Bucharest, Bethlehem, New Orleans, Toronto, Transylvania, a gas station theater in Michigan, Jericho… etc.
The collective. The combined force of differing experiences/perceptions/values – and the transcendence that is possible when we fight through our prejudice and isolation and begin to understand the “other.”
