Photo Flash: First Look at Sideshow's THE GACY PLAY, Opens 6/28
The cast includes Sideshow Artistic Associate Andy Luther as John Wayne Gacy, Jr., with Deanne Boyd, Jim Farrell, Andrew Goetten, Joe Mack, Elizabeth B. Murphy, Alex Ring, Adam Shalzi and Andy Sheagren.
It's Christmas, 1975, and the crawlspace is open in suburban Chicago. John Wayne Gacy, Jr. is a man with secrets beneath his floor, but when his wife and friends start asking questions, he withdraws into his own world and his late-night conversations with the smoking, swaggering Duke who shares his name. As ghosts begin crowding the household, the divide between dream and reality vanishes, and the smell just keeps on getting worse. Sideshow Theatre Company and playwright Calamity West delve deep into the mind of Chicago's infamous serial killer in this world premiere production and unearth an otherworldly meditation on masculinity and violence that hits all too close to home.
The show runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, and Sundays at 3 PM from June 28 – July 29, 2012. Preview Performances are Sat., June 23 at 8 PM; Sun., June 24 at 3 PM; & Wed., June 27 at 8 PM.
