Photo Flash: First Look At the Chicago Premiere of SWEAT At Goodman Theatre

Goodman Theatre presents the Chicago premiere of Lynn Nottage's Sweat, directed by Ron OJ Parson. An acclaimed Broadway hit and 2017 Pulitzer Prize winner, the production follows a group of friends in a Rust Belt town who have spent their lives sharing secrets and laughs on the factory floor. But when layoffs begin to chip away at their trust, they're pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight in this collision of race, class and friendship at a pivotal moment in America.

Sweat marks the fourth Nottage play to be produced at the Goodman, following Crumbs from the Table of Joy (2006), Ruined (a 2008 world-premiere Goodman commission that earned the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama) and By the Way, Meet Vera Stark(2013).

The ensemble cast includes Tyla Abercrumbie (Cynthia), Steve Casillas (Oscar), Mike Cherry (Jason), Ronald Conner (Evan), Chaon Cross (Jessie), Kirsten Fitzgerald (Tracey), Keith Kupferer (Stan), Edgar Sanchez (Chris) and André Teamer (Brucie). The creative team includes Kevin Depinet (Set Design), Mara Blumenfeld (Costume Design), Keith Parham(Lighting Design) and Richard Woodbury (Sound Design). Alden Vasquez is the Production Stage Manager.
