Steppenwolf's Pillowman Opens Tonight in Chicago

Steppenwolf's Pillowman Opens Tonight in Chicago

The Pillowman, Martin McDonagh's disturbing, dark play about a writer who's interrogated about murders that are eerily similar to those in his stories, opens this evening at Chicago's Steppenwolf Downstairs Theatre. This production should not be confused with the acclaimed London/Broadway production that snapped up the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2004 and two Tonys for lighting and set design in 2005. Instead, this version is helmed by Steppenwolf ensemble member Amy Morton and features Tracy Letts, Yasen Peyankov and Jim True-Frost.

Will the play that many view as McDonagh's masterpiece translate well in Chicago? We'll find out tomorrow when the reviews are published. I'll be at this evening's opening and provide you with my personal view tomorrow.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
