News   Lookingglass Theatre Company Announces Casting for Blood Wedding and Thaddeus and Slocum
 
Lookingglass Theatre Company has announced casting for the final two shows of its 2015-16 season, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Blood Wedding will feature Eva Barr, Christine Dunford, Kareen Bandealy, Troy West, Atra Asdou, Chance Bone, Wendy Mateo, Melisa Pereyra, Helen Sadler, Kevin Viol and Bubba Weiler. The show, written by Federico Garcia Lorca and translated by Michael Dewell and Carmen Zapata, will be directed by Daniel Ostling. Blood Wedding is described as such: "When a young bride-to-be receives a visit from a former paramour on her wedding day, a family blood feud threatens the celebration and sparks a deadly dance of love and deception, family and revenge, beauty and betrayal." The show opens March 2, 2016, at Water Tower Water Works.

Thaddeus and Slocum: A Vaudeville Adventure features Monica Raymund ("Chicago Fire"), Lawrence E. DiStasi, Raymond Fox, Molly Brennan, Adam Brown, Sharriese Hamilton, Tosin Morohunfola, Samuel Taylor and Travis Turner. The show, written by Kevin Douglas, will be co-directed by J. Nicole Brooks and Krissy Vanderwarker. Thaddeus and Slocum is described as such: "It’s 1908 and Chicago’s Majestic Theatre is the jewel of the vaudeville circuit. The only thing stopping Thaddeus and Slocum from becoming the next great stage act is as simple – and complicated – as black and white. Will laughter triumph and friendship endure as racial boundaries threaten to destroy their dreams of making the 'big time?'" The show opens June 1, 2016, at Water Tower Water Works.
