NELSON ALGREN: FOR KEEPS AND A SINGLE DAY

June 4 – June 29, 2008

The Museum of Contemporary Art

Direction and Films by John Musial
Original Music Composed by David Pavkovic

Algren’s backstreet poetry and gritty tales of Chicago interweave with the pulse of a live, onstage jazz combo in this intimate portrait of one of Chicago’s most enduring literary figures. Performed against a background of grainy 16mm films, Nelson Algren: For Keeps and a Single Day invites you to meet Algren, the people he chronicled, and shuffle the streets of Chicago in his shoes. Jeff-nominated Ensemble Member Thomas J. Cox reprises his role of Algren, giving us an incomparable window into Algren’s rhythmic, comic, sensual vision of his beloved city.

Featuring Ensemble Member Thomas J. Cox. Music performed by Kevin O’Donnell and Bob Lovecchio.
