The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert, friend of Lookingglass Theatre and fan of the Chicago theatre scene, will host the lunchtime celebration to mark 35 momentous years of Collaboration, Invention, and Transformation at Chicago’s one-and-only Lookingglass Theatre Company while celebrating the artistry, community, and resiliency of theatre companies citywide. Colbert will add his signature commentary and humor as he honors Lookingglass Theatre’s nationally recognized artistic excellence, ensemble-based theatrical innovation, and celebrated work with Chicago’s young people.
Colbert will pay tribute to Chicago theaters-at-large and Lookingglass, specifically, through conversations with Lookingglass artists Atra Asdou (Iraq, but Funny), J. Nicole Brooks (Mellon Playwright Awardee, Her Honor Jane Byrne), Anthony Fleming III (Power Book IV: Force), Heidi Stillman (Lookingglass Artistic Director), Matthew C. Yee (Lucy and Charlie’s Honeymoon), and a special guest to be named later!
