“Becky Shaw” at Red Orchid AND “Maple & Vine” at Next Mentioned in the Chicago Tribune!

How exciting is this? I’m assistant directing “Becky Shaw” at A Red Orchid Theatre (we open at the end of this month!) and dramaturging “Maple & Vine” at Next Theatre and BOTH were mentioned as “Buzzworthy Bets” on the Chicago Tribune. Here’s what they say:

“Becky Shaw”

Gina Gionfriddo’s acclaimed comedy of warped manners and horrific first dates makes its local bow under Damon Kiely’s direction.  A Red Orchid Theatre; Sept. 22-Nov. 6

“Maple and Vine”

The peripatetic Kiely also stages the Midwest premiere of Jordan Harrison’s 2011 Humana Festival hit about a besieged 21st-century couple who retreat to a community of 1950s re-enactors.   Next Theatre, Evanston; Oct. 27-Dec. 4
