Lookingglass' Brothers Karamazov Extended by Two Weeks

News   Lookingglass' Brothers Karamazov Extended by Two Weeks Lookingglass Theatre Company has extended the run of the world premiere of The Brothers Karamazov, written and directed by Heidi Stillman, adapted from the novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Due to ticket demand, the production now gets two extra weeks, to Dec. 21 at Lookingglass Theatre Company's home inside Chicago's historic Water Tower Water Works, 821 N. Michigan Ave. at Pearson.

"Fyodor Karamazov is one of literature's most lecherous, greedy and delightfully despicable fathers," according to production notes. "When his eldest son discovers he and his father are rivals for the affection of the same wayward woman, a storm of violence, betrayal and passion rains down on the Karamazov family and the world beyond."

Ensemble member and Lookingglass artistic director of new work Heidi Stillman is the award-winning adaptor and director of Charles Dickens' Hard Times.

The production features ensemble members Eva Barr (Mrs. Kolklakov), Doug Hara (Alyosha) and Philip R. Smith (Ivan) and artistic associate Louise Lamson (Katerina).

Tickets for The Brothers Karamazov are available by phone, (312) 337-0665, or online at lookingglasstheatre.org. The best ticket availability is for performances Dec. 10-21.
