Opening night for FUCKING A by Suzan-Lori Parks with UrbanTheater Company was fantastic. Take a look at what K.D. Hopkins at Chicago Theater Beat and others had to say:
"Brilliant ensemble brings raw exuberance to controversial subjects" -Chicago Theater Beat
"Richard Perez' direction is tight and smooth" -Chicago Theater Beat
"This is great theater and it deserves a wide audience" -Chicago Theater Beat
"In a stirring central performance, Owens portrays a vulnerable, exhausted woman who's fiercely devoted to finding her son" -Time Out Chicago
"Parks has thoroughly and vividly imagined that alternate world, incorporating elements of Brechtian fable and Jacobean tragedy" -Chicago Reader
Fucking A by Suzan-Lori Parks has its first preview tomorrow with UrbanTheater. The cast, design team, and staff have done a fantastic job coming together to bring this story to life. I hope you can make it before April 15!
