Biting satiric comedy… damnably enjoyable. ”

YES, CLYBOURNE PARK IS GOING TO BROADWAY! See below
Highest ratings from critics and audiences!
Jokes fly and hidden agendas unfold as two vastly different generations of characters tip-toe the delicate dance of social politics, pitting race against real estate at the crux of two seminal events — 50 years apart — in the same north Chicago house.
Clybourne Park, the rich and darkly satirical 2011 Pulitzer Prize and Olivier Award (London) winning comedy, is every bit provocative as it is entertaining.
“BRILLIANT AND VERSATILE.
Yes, it’s dangerous and provocative, but pulverizingly funny to boot”
- Bob Verini, Variety
“A spiky and insightful new comedy.”
- Ben Brantley, The New York Times
The 1959 landmark drama A Raisin in the Sun provides a contextual center for Clybourne Park. The neighborhood and house the family aspires to purchase in A Raisin in the Sun is the setting for Clybourne Park.
Two powerful plays together in an exclusive CTG programming event!
