Adapted by John Guare from The Front Page by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur and the Columbia Pictures film
Directed by Julianne Boyd
Starring BSC Associate Artists Christopher Innvar (Much Ado About Nothing) and Mark H. Dold (Breaking the Code), along with Jane Pfitsch (Broadway’s Cabaret)
Editor Walter Burns will do anything to find an ace reporter cunning enough to scoop a story in the cutthroat Chicago press world, even if that means turning to his ex-wife, Hildy Johnson, who comes back to the newsroom one last time before leaving the game for good. In Guare’s adaptation, the play takes place in 1939, the day before war breaks out in Europe, which adds a political framework to the otherwise antic proceedings.
Associate Artist Christopher Innvar stars as Walter Burns alongside fellow Associate Artist Mark H. Dold, who will star as Bruce Baldwin, Hildy Johnson’s fiancé.
Tony Award-winner John Guare is the author of such plays as The House of Blue Leaves, Six Degrees of Separation, A Free Man of Color, and Two Gentlemen of Verona. His most recent play, 3 Kinds of Exile, also marked his acting debut.
