A few weeks ago, I was approached to write a review for a local theatre company here in Chicago. The name of the company is Assassination Theater, and they’re putting on a “theatrical investigation” of the Chicago mafia’s supposed connection to the JFK assassination. I’ve got no clue as to who they’ll end up fingering for it—my knowledge of the JFK affair is unfortunately very limited—but given thier poster tag lines I suspect the Outfit figures in there somewhere! Either way, I’m excited to see it and very flattered that they offered me tickets in exchange for a review. So, I’ll be going to see it this Thursday night, with a review to follow Friday. Hooray! 🙂
The reason I’m writing about this to all of you, however, is that this will lead to a small format change. Namely, I plan to “stick” the review to the top of my blog until the play finishes its run in November. I’ll still be posting as normal, of course, but now when you visit my blog the first thing you’ll see will be that review. I figured this would make things easier for anyone searching for them online.
So, if you’re interested in the JFK assassination and live in or around Chicago, you might want to check out this play—or at least read my review ;).
You can check out the poster below:
Thier official website can be found here. More to come soon! 🙂
