Also, the cast of RESERVOIR DOGS will be appearing at Oracle Theater Saturday the 17th for the show TONIGHT, IT’S LIVE! hosted by Tom Bambara at 11pm. You can enjoy the show LIVE for free at Oracle Theater, 3809 N. Broadway or stream the show LIVE from their website: www.tonightitslive.com. Not only has RESERVOIR DOGS received critical acclaim (Chicago Theater Beat – 3 1/2 out of 4; Chicago Stage Style – Recommended) but so has TONIGHT IT’S LIVE! (“Most importantly, it’s a lot of fun.” – Rory Leahy, Centerstage Chicago).
RESERVOIR DOGS: A JUDAS IN OUR MIDST opens Thursday, November 10 at 10 pm as a preview and runs on Fridays and Saturdays thru December 10 at 10 pm and will be playing at Think Tank Theater, 1770 W. Berteau.
What makes this show original is its use of women. The cast consists entirely of women, but they aren’t portrayed in the same way as other plays and movies show them. Other works show them as defeated, or housewives, or toys, or battered. Not in this show. We show them as people that are fully capable for planning and carrying out large scale crime. Capable of violence. Capable of being profane. Capable of being bad asses. Capable of being exactly like their male counterparts are constantly portrayed. We’re not set to make heros out of the characters either. They are flawed, manipulative and crazy, but the point we are trying to make is that women are strong and can handle themselves as much as any man. This show is something that hasn’t been done before and we’d like you to be a part of it.
