¡Be a part of UTC’s journey!
After a successful run of the Midwest Premiere of Brainpeople by José Rivera in 2010, UrbanTheater Company (UTC) tackles another Midwest Premiere by Rivera, Sonnets For An Old Century presented as part of the 2nd Annual Garage Rep at Steppenwolf, opening February 11th. UTC is 1 of 3 up-and-coming companies, performing in rotating repertory and we’re overjoyed at the opportunity!
This work by Obie-winning, Academy Award-nominated playwright José Rivera asks the question, “What would you say about the life you’ve lived?”. In a waiting room for the afterlife, a crowd of ordinary souls are en route to their final resting place and are given one last chance to share with the universe their parting thoughts. Part poetry, part magical realism, this dreamscape play offers profound insights and revelations.
We have stellar cast and an amazing production team. But we need your help to get us through the final stages of production. Every penny you donate will go directly to the costs necessary to making this production successful. Unfortunately, if our goal isn’t met before the deadline, we don’t get a penny, but the show must go on! You can donate as little as $1 to as much as you are capable of. Every little bit counts, and we would love your help to make this amazing production come to life. Thank you in advance for your support!
Help us spread the word!
Madrid, Marilyn and Ivan
