Broadway In Chicago has announced TO MASTER THE ART by William Brown and Doug Frew, directed by William Brown will play the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 E. Chestnut) for a limited engagement beginning September 10, 2013. The Chicago Commercial Collective will produce the 2010 TimeLine world premiere hit.
Commissioned by TimeLine Theatre Company, TO MASTER THE ART received its world premiere at TimeLine in 2010, receiving more than 20 rave reviews and five Jeff Award nominations, including New Work and Production. The play recalls the adventure and romance of Julia and Paul Child's journey of discovery to Paris during the 1950s. From the bistro where Julia fell in love with food, to the kitchen table where she recreated everything learned during cooking class, to a room where Paul was grilled by U.S. agents about alleged Communist contact, this is the epic love story of a larger-than-life culinary icon and her remarkable husband as they struggle to find themselves as Americans abroad.
Broadway In Chicago is proud to host this great Chicago-born play as part of its ongoing hope that the Broadway Playhouse will continue to be the home to many home-grown Chicago theatre hits.
"We applaud Brian Loevner and Aurélia F. Cohen in creating the Chicago Commercial Collective and their collaboration with TimeLine to make this return of TO MASTER THE ART possible," Lou Raizin, President of Broadway In Chicago, said.
"All of us at Broadway In Chicago are committed to expanding the audience for theatre and we hope that this engagement expands not only the audience for TO MASTER THE ART but also TimeLine Theatre Company," Eileen LaCario, Vice President of Broadway In Chicago, commented.
