WHAT THE CONSTITUTION MEANS TO ME

March 4 — April 12, 2020

Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place, 175 E. Chestnut

Broadway's Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony-nominated Best Play What the Constitution Means to Me, by Heidi Schreck and directed by Oliver Butler, arrives in Chicago for a limited engagement. This boundary-breaking play breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of American women. At fifteen-years-old, Heidi Schreck earned her college tuition by winning Constitutional debate competitions across the United States. In this hilarious, hopeful, and achingly human new play, she resurrects her teenage self in order to trace the profound relationship between four generations of women and the founding document that dictated their rights and citizenship. See the play The New York Times calls "not just the best play on Broadway this season, but also the most important." Casting for the national tour of What the Constitution Means to Me will be announced shortly.

MY FAIR LADY

March 24 — April 12, 2020

Cadillac Palace Theatre, 151 W. Randolph

From Lincoln Center Theater that brought you The King & I and South Pacific, comes "a sumptuous new production of the most perfect musical of all time" ( Entertainment Weekly ), Lerner & Loewe's MY FAIR LADY. Director Bartlett Sher's glowing production is "thrilling, glorious and better than it ever was" ( New York Times ). "Every so often a revival comes along that reminds you how indispensable great theater can be" ( NY1 ).

Boasting such classic songs as "I Could Have Danced All Night," "The Rain in Spain," "Wouldn't It Be Loverly" and "On the Street Where You Live," MY FAIR LADY tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a "proper lady." But who is really being transformed?

SIX

July 8 — Oct. 25, 2020

Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place, 175 E. Chestnut

Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived.

From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, SIX the wives of Henry VIII take the mic to reclaim their identities out of the shadow of their infamous spouse—remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an exuberant celebration of 21st-century girl power. The female cast, soon to be announced, are backed by an all-female band, the "Ladies in Waiting." Songs from the studio album are streamed on average 350,000 per day making it the second-highest streaming cast recording in the world.

Appealing to both theater audiences and concert music fans, this production pays tribute to the historic 1971 Billboard Album of the Year while creating a modern, theatrical world that is uniquely fresh and inspiring. Featuring award-winning music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, Jesus Christ Superstar is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary series of events during the final weeks in the life of Jesus Christ as seen through the eyes of Judas.
