Theater Thursday: Lucid (Diamante Productions)

Thursday, February 11



by Tony Fiorentino
Diamante Productions at the Athenaeum Theatre
2936 N. Southport, Chicago

Come to the Athenaeum Theatre before the show to enjoy fine wine, exotic cheeses, and decadant desserts, catered by Fiorentino’s Cucina Italiana (featuring their notoriously rich "Cannoli Dream"). Then stay for the world premiere of Lucid, followed lucidby a post-show discussion with the playwright, cast, and director. Lucid tells the story of Peter Moore, a discontented artist, saddled by the pressures of an unfulfilling relationship and a mercenary day job. Craving the freedom in his life that he lords over the canvass, he begins to experiment with the art of lucid dreaming, fulfilling his wildest fantasies with an imagined mistress. But soon his nightly trysts come to eclipse the demands of reality, and Peter discovers that he may have permanently blurred the line that separates dream from reality.

Event begins at 7 p.m.
Show begins at 8 p.m.

Last 2 weeks of “Vampire Lesbians of Sodom”

Easy Street Players’ “Vampire Lesbians of Sodom”, at the Athenauem, is now entering its final 2 weeks.

One of the longest running plays in Off-Broadway history, “Vampire Lesbians of Sodom” tells the saga of two fatally seductive vampiresses whose paths first collide in ancient Sodom. Their bitter rivalry as bloodsuckers but more importantly, as actresses, endures for two thousand years with stops along the way in 1920’s silent movie Hollywood and contemporary Las Vegas.

For their production, Easy Street Players has created a fun retro YouTube video.  Enjoy.
