The Joffrey's "The Nutcracker" a hit!

No comments:

It's the magical time of the year, when our gorgeous stage is filled with The Joffrey Ballet's magnificent The Nutcracker. Amazingly, this production is celebrating its 20th year! As we expect from The Joffrey, the show has garnered rave reviews - here's what the Tribune and Sun-Times had to say.

Thomas Young added to cast of Too Hot to Handel

No comments:
We're thrilled to announce that tenor Thomas Young will be singing the tenor part in the January 20 performance of Too Hot to Handel! Young is, of course, one-third of the dynamic tenor trio Cook, Dixon and Young. His colleague Victor Trent Cook will sing in both shows, and Rodrick Dixon will sing the January 19 performance. So we'll get to hear all three members of Cook, Dixon and Young sing that weekend!

Welcome and reminder - Complexions this weekend

No comments:

Welcome to the new Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University blog! We'll use this space to give you all the latest Auditorium news - show announcements, pictures, video, reviews, etc.

Right how we're getting ready for this weekend's performances by Complexions Contemporary Ballet. This will be their first Auditorium engagement; in fact, it's their full Chicago premiere. (They did do one piece at the Chicago Dancing Festival this summer.)

This week we've had great preview articles in Time Out Chicago and the Tribune.
You can see their program on our website - it features a lot of company co-founder and co-artistic director Dwight Rhoden's choreography, set to music ranging from Prince to Chopin to Nina Simone. White Stripes fans may be interested in Abdur-Rahim Jackson's 2006 work tHe hArDeSt bUtToN to bUtToN, set to the song of the same name by the White Stripes.
Complexions performs Saturday, November 10 at 7:30pm and Sunday, November 11 at 2:00pm. Tickets ($49, $40, $34, $30) are available by phone at 312.902.1500, online or in person at the Auditorium Theatre box office, 50 E. Congress Parkway.
