Thank you for your support of IMMEDIATE FAMILY and "WHAT'S THE T?" The success of both these productions exceeded all our expectations and would not have been possible without the outpouring of community support we received over the past year. We'll be announcing our upcoming slate of productions in the weeks ahead so stay tuned.

For three nights only next month, October 11 – 13, About Face Theatre will present CLEAR: a new musical experience at the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park. Featuring Music and Lyrics by Paul Oakley Stovall, CLEAR sings a tale of destiny, luck, and the commonality of the human experience. From the gritty and impersonal streets of New York City to the American heartland to the breathtaking and haunting slave castles of Ghana, our storytellers continue to find that change is inevitable… and (r)evolutionary. A spiritual quest in our decidedly computerized times, CLEAR fuses music, memory, ancestry and pure love to remind us how best to live life. Visit our Box Office online for tickets http://goo.gl/SlBG4 or call (773)-784-8565 x111.

Introduction

About Face Theatre creates exceptional, innovative, and adventurous plays to advance the national dialogue on gender and sexual identity, and to challenge and entertain audiences in Chicago, across the country, and around the world.

Our vision is to be Chicago’s celebrated center for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and ally (LGBTQA) arts and amplify the nation’s leading voices to spark social change. Enabled by broad community support, the organization thrives as an inclusive home where diverse artists, youth, audiences and community partners come together for artistic exchange and cultural dialogue.
