Photos: Inside LUNA GALE's Opening Night at CTG/Kirk Douglas Theatre with Dana Delaney, Richard Schiff & More!

The Goodman Theatre's world premiere production of Rebecca Gilman's "Luna Gale," directed by Robert Falls, opened last night, Tuesday Tuesday, December 2 at 8 p.m. at the Center Theatre Group/Kirk Douglas Theatre. The production continues through December 21, 2014. Check out a look back at opening night below!

The cast, who originated their roles in Chicago, includes Jordan Baker, Reyna de Courcy, Melissa DuPrey, Mary Beth Fisher, Erik Hellman, Colin Sphar and Richard Thieriot.

A veteran social worker, Caroline, thinks she has a typical case on her hands when she meets Peter and Karlie, two teenage drug addicts accused of neglecting their baby, Luna Gale. But when Caroline places their daughter in the care of Karlie's very religious mother, she sparks a family conflict that exposes a shadowy past and forces her to make a risky decision with potentially life-altering consequences.

Set design for "Luna Gale" is by Todd Rosenthal, costumes by Kaye Voce, lighting by Robert Wierzel and original music and sound design by Richard Woodbury. The production stage manager is Kirsten Parker.

Rebecca Gilman's plays include "A True History of the Johnston Flood," "Boy Gets Girl," "Spinning Into Butter," "Blue Surge" (all of which were commissioned and originally produced by the Goodman Theatre, where she is an artistic associate), "The Story of Living," "The Sweetest Thing in Baseball," "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter," "Dollhouse," "The Crowd You're in With," and most recently, "Soups, Stews and Casseroles: 1976." She is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Harper Lee Award, the Scott McPherson Award, the Theater Masters Visionary Award and an Illinois Arts Council playwriting fellowship, among others.
