The New Colony presents
Directed by Andrew Hobgood
An Uptown Chicago loft becomes a breeding ground for young minds looking to change the world. Self-identified geniuses, cybervigilantes, hacktivists and anarchists cast off the laws of the land as they attempt to alter Humanity's fate. As these Millennials plot against enemies and build complex data schemes, reWILDing Genius asks how far is too far in our quest to save us from ourselves.
The creative team for reWILDing Genius includes William Boles (scenic design), Curtis Cassell (costume design), Sarah Hughey (lighting design), Nick Kawahara (sound design), Kent Cubbage (projections design), Jenny Pinson (properties design), Geno Franco (production manager), Christopher Kristant (technical director), Christopher Chmelik (dialect coach), Ben Kaye (assistant director) and William Glick (script supervisor).
Prologue Theatre Company presents
Saturday Night/Sunday Morning
By Katori Hall
Directed by TaRon Patton
Memphis, 1945: Miss Mary's beauty parlor and boarding house is alive and hopping-full of young African American women primping their hair and telling stories of their soldiers overseas. But as the final days of WWII approach, the women wrestle with the uncertainty of what the future will hold when-and if-their men return. Hilarious and historical, Saturday Night/Sunday Morning is a story about finding friendship and love in unexpected places.
The creative team for Saturday Night/Sunday Morning includes Yu Shibagaki (scenic design), Beth Laske-Miller (costume design), Sarah Hughey (lighting design), Curtis Powell (sound design), Sarah Burnham (properties design), Leonicia Berry Bongorno (assistant director/stage manager), Anthony Rodriguez (assistant stage manager), Jennifer McClendon (production manager), Christopher Kristant (technical director) and Margaret Lebron (dramaturg).

Rising tides, erotic dances and seductive demi-gods encroach on an isolated tropical paradise. Inspired by the work of playwright Charles Mee and Walkabout's physical training practices, The Wild is the world premiere of a devised laboratory theater performance which confronts distant realities and their infringement on our daily lives.
