Streamed Performance: Teenage Dick
About Streamed Performance: Teenage Dick
Though live performances of "Teenage Dick" at Theater Wit in Chicago were canceled as part of the community's efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, Theater Wit is thrilled to offer audiences the chance to experience the show from home through this video recorded performance. The theater is offering tickets to their streamed performance in a "Pay What You Can" style so that you can choose your price based on what you can afford and how many people will be watching with you. Your ticket purchase goes directly back to supporting the theater as they plan for the future.
Purchase a ticket for your desired date/time and receive an email with a private, personalized URL and password to watch a previously captured performance on Vimeo 20 minutes before showtime. All show times are CT (Central Time). At the end of very performance, you are invited to join the cast and your fellow audience members for a live post-show discussion over video conference in the virtual lobby.
Now is the winter of discontent made glorious summer at Roseland High. Theater's most famous disabled character comes to Theater Wit like you've never seen him before—in the vicious, no-holds barred brutal politics of high school. Richard, picked on because of his cerebral palsy (and his semi-creepy tendancy to monologue), is determined to become class president. But the road to power is never smooth, and Richard must decide: is it better to be loved or feared?
