CHICAGO -- Last Chance to catch Flyovers, Jeffrey Sweet's drama at Chicago's Victory Gardens Theatre. Originally scheduled to run May 15 June 28, the show was extended to Aug. 2.
On July 7, Gary Cole replaced fellow Chicago actor William Petersen in the lead role of a childhood bully who, a quarter century later, continues to oppress his now-successful former victim (played by Marc Vann). Cole most recently played the dweebish dad in both Brady Bunch film sequels.
Teddi Siddall, Cole's real-life wife, has replaced Amy Morton as Iris, a woman who was once popular but has now been hardened by a hard-luck life.
Flyovers, directed by Dennis Zacek, opened May 21. Other plays by author Sweet include American Enterprise, The Value of Names and Porch.
