About This Show

Sex. Violence. Journalism. The Institute for Advanced Theater Training dives headfirst into the comic and corrupt world of newspaper reporters in 1920s Chicago in The Front Page. Leading newspaperman Hildy Johnson is ready to leave it all behind and get married, but his editor is just as determined to make him stay. A jailbreak, a meddling mother in law, and the insatiable competitive urge to get the story further complicate the situation and seem to drag Hildy back into the newsroom. This sidesplitting American masterpiece satirizes love, the press, election year politics, and the negotiability of “truth” in those worlds.
