Photo Flash: First Look at Karen Janes Woditsch, Craig Spidle and More in TO MASTER THE ART

TO MASTER THE ART, by William Brown and Doug Frew, enters its final two weeks at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 E. Chestnut). The six week engagement will end Oct. 20, 2013. The Chicago Commercial Collective produced this staging of the 2010 TimeLine Theatre world premiere hit. Check out a first look below!

Commissioned by TimeLine Theatre Company, TO MASTER THE ART received its world premiere at TimeLine in 2010, receiving more than 20 rave reviews and five Jeff Award nominations, including New Work and Production. The play recalls the adventure and romance of Julia and Paul Child's journey of discovery to Paris during the 1950s. From the bistro where Julia fell in love with food, to the kitchen table where she recreated everything learned during cooking class, to a room where Paul was grilled by U.S. agents about alleged Communist contact, this is the epic love story of a larger-than-life culinary icon and her remarkable husband as they struggle to find themselves as Americans abroad.

Broadway In Chicago is proud to have hosted this great Chicago-born play as part of its ongoing hope that the Broadway Playhouse will continue to be the home to many home-grown Chicago theatre hits.

The initial idea of TO MASTER THE ART was hatched by TimeLine Company members during an artistic retreat in the summer of 2006. An official commission in 2008 with William Brown and Doug Frew culminated in a developmental workshop and in the play's world premiere in 2010. The development of TO MASTER THE ART has been partially supported by The Dramatists Guild Fund.
