Zimmerman's Trojan Women Extends at Goodman Until May 11

News   Zimmerman's Trojan Women Extends at Goodman Until May 11 Tony Award-winning director Mary Zimmerman, whose production of Metamorphoses played at Off-Broadway's Second Stage Theatre and transferred to Broadway in 2002, will see her latest show at Chicago's Goodman Theatre, Seneca's classic tragedy, The Trojan Women, extend one week until May 11. It was to have closed May 4.

The choice of The Trojan Women—which concerns the dire fate of the women of vanquished Troy as the Greek army approaches—may have been dictated by America's ongoing "war on terrorism" and the clash between the U.S. and Iraq.

Tickets for the Goodman show are $51-$102. The Goodman is located at 170 N. Dearborn St. Call (312) 443-3800.
