Review Roundup: Sufjan Stevens, Justin Peck and Jackie Sibblies Drury's ILLINOISE at Chicago Shakespeare Theater

Illinoise, the theatrical adaption of Grammy- and Oscar-nominated Sufjan Stevens’ concept album Illinois, is coming to Park Avenue Armory March 3-23, 2024, following a run at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater from January 28-February 18, 2024. Let's see what the critics have to say!

Review: ILLINOISE at Chicago Shakespeare Theater

ILLINOISE is a journey through our great state of Illinois using movement. Directed and choreographed by Justin Peck and featuring music and lyrics from Sufjan Stevens’s ILLINOIS album, the show uses dance as its primary narrative language. Peck collaborated with playwright Jacke Sibblies Drury on a loose storyline for ILLINOISE, but that story is communicated entirely through dance. Stevens’s lyrics underscore the situations in the show and mirror the emotional shades of the choreography.
