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.
