Sideshow Theatre Company continues its 2013-14 season on the heels of its critically acclaimed production of 9 Circles with the Chicago premiere of the darkly comic drama THE GOLDEN DRAGON by Roland Schimmelpfennig, playwright of the Sideshow''s 2012 Jeff Award-winning production of Idomeneus (Best Ensemble), with translation by David Tushingham and direction by Artistic Director Jonathan L. Green and Marti Lyons. THE GOLDEN DRAGON plays now through February 23, 2014 at Victory Gardens'' Richard Christiansen Theater, 2433 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago, where Sideshow is kicking off its multi-year residency. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

THE GOLDEN DRAGON features: Sideshow ensemble member Matt Fletcher with David Lawrence Hamilton, Daria Harper, Deanna Myers and Noah Sullivan.

A warm summer evening at The Golden Dragon, where the staff serves Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese cuisine to strangers who pass through its doors. Next door, a convenience store and its curious proprietor. Upstairs, a warehouse containing an unspeakable secret. As the evening progresses, the stories of the Dragon''s patrons and staff slowly unravel and intertwine, with all the shock, intrigue and danger of the international city at their core. Sideshow once again teams with playwright Roland Schimmelpfennig (Idomeneus) to tell a fast-paced and sweeping fable of Culture Clash in modern life. A dynamic ensemble of five actors embodies nearly twenty characters, and their intersecting desire for power exposes the raw nerve at the center of a newly globalized world.

The production team for THE GOLDEN DRAGON includes: William Boles (scenic design), Kristin DeiTos (costume design), John Kelley (lighting design), Sideshow artistic associate Christopher M. LaPorte (sound design/original music), Arianna Soloway (props coordinator), Alison McLeod and Brittany Parlor (stage managers) and AaRon Shapiro (production manager).

Tickets: Previews: $10 in advance or pay-what-you-can at the door. Regular run: $20 - $25. Tickets are available at www.victorygardens.org, by calling (773) 871-3000 or in person at the Victory Gardens Box Office.
