Headsets (A View From The Light Booth)
By Williams Missouri Downs
May 19-22, 2016
7:30 PM, CBC Theatre
Directed by Ronn Campbell
On the final night of the Chicago-Ensemble-Repertory-Group-Theatre-Project’s doomed production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, everything that can go wrong does. The Cast of Hamlet gets hit with food poisoning, Yorick’s skull goes missing and the police arrive to shut down the production because the producer hasn’t paid the rent. When the critic from the Chicago Tribune shows up to review their production, the techies decided there is only one way to save their reputations – the critic must die. The techies set out to “accidentally” drop a stage light on him from the grid. As the production comes to its hilarious end, it’s no wonder Headsets has been called the Noises Off of technical theatre.

The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the family's lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters, who wish to marry for love – each one's choice of a husband moves further away from the customs of his faith – and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village. It remains Broadway's sixteenth longest-running show in history. The production was extraordinarily profitable and highly acclaimed. It won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Score, Book, Direction, and Choreography.

The same melodrama story of bad guy who comes to collect the rent, the sweet young thing who can’t pay it, the hero who saves her from the villain, and an older and sometimes wiser “aunt” is told five times, in the style of Rodgers & Hammerstein (Oklahoma!, The King and I, Sound of Music), Andrew Lloyd Webber (Phantom, Starlight Express), Jerry Herman (Hello Dolly!, Mame) , Stephen Sondheim (Company, Little Night Music) and Kander & Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret). The parody will have audiences laughing – and if they KNOW musicals, they’ll be in stitches!
Tickets go on sale June 1 via Tix.com and the CBC Arts Center office.
