Photo Flash: First Look at David Adjmi's 3C at A Red Orchid Theatre

A Red Orchid Theatre concludes its 2016-17 Season with the Chicago premiere of 3C, written by David Adjmi and directed by Ensemble Member Shade Murray. The production runs now through June 4, 2017, at A Red Orchid Theatre, 1531 N. Wells. The press opening is tonight, April 24, and BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Inspired by 70's sitcoms and the political incorrectness of "jiggle television," 3C is a hilarious and horrifying look at identity and what lies beneath the homogeneous perky veneer. Brad lands in L.A. to start a new life. A wild night of partying finds him passed out in Connie and Linda's kitchen and the three strike a deal that raises the suspicions of the landlords. Complications spiral out of control, taking the show from farce to something... unexpected.

"We could use a good laugh, an out-loud, roll-on-the floor, cringe-worthy, ugly-cry laugh," notes Artistic Director Kirsten Fitzgerald. "3C certainly brings that to the room along with much, much more. I am beyond thrilled to get to know David and for our artists and audiences alike to mine the deepest and darkest of identity questions both personal and public. Director Shade Murray has a knack for finding the hilarity in the darkest of interactions. I cannot wait to have them in the same room exploring and sharing the world and words with all."

The cast of 3C includes Ensemble Members Jennifer Engstrom (Mrs. Wicker), Lawrence Grimm (Mr. Wicker) and Steve Haggard (Terry), with Christina Gorman (Linda), Nick Mikula (Brad) and Sigrid Sutter (Connie).

The creative team includes Sarah Fabian (Set Designer), Myron Elliott (Costume Designer), Rachel Levy (Lighting Designer), Brando Triantafillou (Sound Designer), Lydia Hanchett (Props Designer) and Jon Martinez (Choreography). The Production Stage Manager is Christa van Baale.

Performances run at A Red Orchid Theatre, 1531 N. Wells Ave. Tickets: $15-$25 previews, $30-$35 regular run. ($30 Thurs, $35 Fri, Sat, Sun). Box Office: Located at 1531 N. Wells Ave, Chicago, (312) 943-8722; or online at www.aredorchidtheatre.org.
