Following its hit revival of Marvin's Room, Shattered Globe Theatre continues its 25th anniversary season with Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph's uncommon love story ANIMALS OUT OF PAPER, a vibrant and nuanced peek into the creative process that shapes three lives, directed by Devon de Mayo. ANIMALS OUT OF PAPER plays now through February 27, 2016 at Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Ave. in Chicago. The press opening is Sunday, January 17 at 3 pm. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast onstage below!

Andy, a calculus teacher and avid fan, pressures a reclusive Ilana, a world famous origami artist, into becoming an unwitting mentor to a troubled teenage prodigy, Suresh. These three intriguingly flawed characters begin to reshape and mold each other's lives in much the same way they fold and crease their origami art.

ANIMALS OUT OF PAPER features Ensemble Members Cortney McKenna* and Joe Wiens* with Awate Serequeberhan.

The production includes Grant Sabin (scenic designer), Sarah Jo White* (costume designer), Brian Healy (lighting design), Stephen Gawrit (sound design), David Antonio Reed (props master), Christine Edison (origami design), Steve Peebles* (asst. director), Kelly Claussen (production manager) and Stephanie Hurovitz (stage manager). *Denotes SGT Ensemble Member.

Tickets are currently available at www.theaterwit.org, in person at the Theater Wit Box Office or by calling (773) 975-8150.
