Around the Hood: “Look, we are breathing” Gala Opening

It is pretty incredible how much local theatre we have in the neighborhood any night of the week. Our neighbor Susan wanted to let everyone know about a new show opening at Rivendell. If you live in the neighborhood you can get $10 off your ticket by using  the code “HELLO NEIGHBOR” when you purchase your ticket online.

Gala Opening is April 13 at 6pm with a reception immediately following. Performances run April 2 – May 16, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8:00pm and Saturdays at 4:00pm.

“Those who die young are mourned for their lost potential. But what if Mike, a high school hockey player killed while driving drunk, never really showed much potential? While sorting through their own deeply conflicted feelings in the aftermath of the accident, his mother Alice, his AP English teacher Leticia, and his one-time hookup, Caylee try to understand who Mike was – and who he might have become. In “Look, we are breathing,” Chicago playwright Laura Jacqmin turns her unblinking eye on the grieving process, as the three most important women in Mike’s life realize that in order to move on, they first have to confront some hard truths about themselves.”

Directed by Megan Shuchman, Associate Director of Education at Steppenwolf
