When the audience first meets them, Marianne and Ellie are bright, charming college roommates prone to breaking out in tap-dance routines in the middle of study sessions. They come from very different backgrounds and are headed into very different futures — wealth, marriage, and anthropological adventures for one; family troubles, solo living, and a career as a musician for the other. But the bond they forged upon meeting is the rare sort that transcends all circumstance and thrives across time — even, in their case, across several continents.
Or does it? What happens when you realize that the friendship you valued on the merit of its fortitude through decades means something else entirely to the person on the other end? F Theory gives center stage to friendship, a relationship often sidelined in both art and life to make way for family, romance, and marriage, though it may be stronger than them all.

Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and became a queen of rock 'n' roll almost overnight.

Golden Globe-winning actor and playwright Regina Taylor (I'll Fly Away) won the 2000 American Theatre Critics / Steinberg New Play Award for Oo-bla-dee when it premiered at Chicago's Goodman Theatre. The play — a shimmering portrait of a female bebop band of African-American musicians traveling the country after World War Two — has its first major revival with new music by multi-Obie-winning jazz composer Diedre L. Murray (Running Man). Tony winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Jitney) directs.
Brandon J. Dirden (Jitney) and Crystal A. Dickinson (Clybourne Park) play Walter Lee Younger and Ruth Younger in one of the greatest family dramas ever written: Lorraine Hansberry's 1959 masterpiece A Raisin in the Sun.
In this landmark drama, Hansberry — drawing on her own family's experience with housing discrimination — dramatizes the story of the Younger family, headed by matriarch Lena Younger, her son Walter Lee, and his wife, Ruth, who live (with other family members) in poverty on Chicago's south side. As the play begins, we see that Walter Lee, a chauffeur, dreams of what he might do with a long-promised life-insurance check, a legacy left to them to them by Lena's late husband. We meet the Younger family on the day that their lives could change forever. Taking its title from a poem by Langston Hughes — "What happens to a dream deferred/Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?" — Hansberry's play explores the different hopes and aspirations of each member of the Younger family as they fight for their piece of the American dream.
A Raisin in the Sun debuted in 1959 and was the first play by a black woman to be produced on Broadway. Produced at Two River for the first time in the theater's 24-year history, the play is Lorraine Hansberry's seminal masterpiece about race, social justice, and history — American history in the largest sense, and the personal histories of ordinary African-Americans.

"If someone in the year 1916 told me that in 1917 I'd be in the army, I would have thought him insane," said Charles Edward Dilkes (1887-1968).
