Chicago Theatres Get Mamet's Neighborhood and Ravenhill's Shopping

News   Chicago Theatres Get Mamet's Neighborhood and Ravenhill's Shopping
 
CHICAGO--Two local theaters have secured the rights to two controversial and hotly contested scripts. Skokie's Northlight Theatre will produce David Mamet's The Old Neighborhood, while Bailiwick Repertory, a busy North Side theatre, just got the green light for the Chicago premiere of Mark Ravenhill's London sensation Shopping and Fucking. (Of course it remains to be seen if Chicago's dailies will print the latter title without asterisks.)
