Blind Date Re-Imagines Reagan-Gorbachev Meeting
Buy Tickets $22.50 - $29 $45 - $54
Not so long ago, but before presidential Twitter rants, Tinder meetups and 24/7 news, two of history's most enigmatic leaders -- Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev -- meet to negotiate a halt to the arms race. A crafty game of one-upmanship ensues; meanwhile, their wives engage in a passive-aggressive tango over tea. Playwright Rogelio Martinez, called "a fresh and funny talent" by Backstage, "finds new twists on old topics" (Variety) in this compulsively fascinating, slyly comic behind-the-scenes glimpse at a 20th century landmark event that shaped world history. See Blind Date at the Goodman Theatre's Albert stage in Chicago.

New Drama From In the Heights' Quiara Alegría Hudes

Theater junkies and fans of In the Heights will love writer Quiara Alegría Hudes' Water by the Spoonful, a play whose relevancy dates back to the current events of 2012. In an online chat room, a group of addicts -- a janitor, a software mogul, a college grad and an IRS paper-pusher -- crack jokes and bully each other into recovery. But when an Iraqi war vet brings some drama into the chat room, things take a complete left turn. Family, forgiveness and community are the lessons learned when Water by the Spoonful comes to the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.
