Photo Flash: First Look at the Goodman's SUPPORT GROUP FOR MEN
"We are brothers, we are men. We do not give advice or comment on other people's feelings or situations. We only talk when we have the stick." These are the rules of Support Group for Men, a new comedy by Ellen Fairey (Graceland, TV's Nurse Jackie, Masters of Sex, The Sinner) about what it means to be a man in today's America.
Directed by Kimberly Senior, Support Group for Men explores shifting social and gender roles through the lens of four Chicago guys-Delano (Anthony Irons), Brian (Ryan Kitley), Roger (Keith Kupferer) and Kevin (Tommy Rivera-Vega)-who gather weekly to vent about middle-aged maladies in a Wrigleyville apartment. Also cast are Jeff Kurysz, Sadieh Rifai and Eric Slater, and the creative team includes Jack Magaw (sets), Noël Huntzinger (costumes), Jen Schriever(lighting) and Richard Woodbury (sound). Support Group for Men appears June 23 - July 29, 2018 (opening night is July 2 at 7pm) in the Goodman's Albert Theatre. Tickets ($25 - $80; subject to change) are available at GoodmanTheatre.org/SupportGroup, by telephone at 312.443.3800 or at the box office (170 N. Dearborn).
