Botanic Garden the Musical The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries) Outdoors

When: Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through July 22 2021

Berwyn's 16th Street Theater presents an outdoor concert reading of a musical by Todd Logan and Lindsay Jones, starring Carmen Roman and James Leaming and directed by 16th Street artistic director Ann Filmer. Adapted from Logan's 2008 play (which was directed by the late Olympia Dukakis, also starring real-life spouses Roman and Leaming), the story follows the trajectory of a middle-aged couple's marriage, looking back at the good, the bad, and the mundane moments that add up to a lifetime. It's staged in the park at 1529 S. Harlem in Berwyn (at Maple just north of 16th Street). Patrons should bring their own blankets or lawn chairs. Food and nonalcoholic beverages may also be brought in. It is wheelchair-accessible. Patrons who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 are required to wear masks while moving about the park, but may remove them when seated with their group. Advance reservations are strongly suggested.

Price: $22; Berwyn resident or low-income, $18
