BoHo Theatre, the small storefront producer that has proved a magnet for Jeff Award attention in its ten seasons to date, today announced three titles for its 11th. The 2015 slate includes the Chicago premieres of two musicals by rising talents.
The season opens with Ordinary Days, a chamber musical by Adam Gwon about four young New Yorkers whose paths intersect (February 13–March 15). It's followed by a revival of Scotland Road (May 15–June 14), a 1993 chiller by Jeffrey Hatcher on the order of BoHo's recently Jeff-nominated Veronica's Room. Both productions will be staged at BoHo's Heartland Studio space in Rogers Park.
In the fall (exact dates to be determined), BoHo will have the Chicago premiere of Dogfight, the critically acclaimed adaptation of the 1991 River Phoenix film, with a book by Peter Duchan and score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. This final production will be staged at Theater Wit in Lakeview. No details about directors or casting have been announced.
