I have the pleasure of being on the advisory committee for the UIC School of Theatre & Music. One of our goals is to get more community members to attend the theatre and music productions. We are starting to work on an Fall event, but in the meantime why don’t you take a few minutes to learn about this wonderful gem in our community. Sign up to be on their mailing list and keep up to date on their current productions.
Christin Dunford, who is the Director UIC’s Department of Theatre, has been an ensemble member with the Tony Award winning Lookingglass Theatre Company since 1989, and has acted in, written/adapted and/or directed nearly three dozen Lookingglass productions. Most recently, in the spring of 2013, she directed her own adaptation of the New York Times best-selling novel, Still Alice, by Lisa Genova, for Lookingglass as part of the company’s 25th anniversary season. She is currently writing a new play/adaptation commissioned by Lookingglass’ through the Glassworks new work development program.
