Late Night at Garage Rep in the Steppenwolf Garage

CHICAGO (January 9, 2014) – Steppenwolf Theatre Company is pleased to announce the line-up for Late Night @ Garage Rep, a series of cross-genre performances Thursday nights during Garage Rep 2014. The line-up includes a performance by the play with music, Duo: 1 Is 1, 2 Is Math. Duo is the I Do! I Do! for the new century. Starring Chicago veteran actors Suzanne Petri and Roger Anderson, the story follows a couple from their first meeting to their marriage, and through the ups and downs of their relationship as they move through their life together, growing, moving, changing, through difficult times and life's lessons until they discover why they stuck, “Together.” They are funny and moving and human. This sophisticated yet approachable play by Bill C. Thomas and directed by Steppenwolf ensemble member Robert Breuler, is filled with new and affecting music composed by Elizabeth Doyle. Duo is a new work that appeals to everyone from the young couples starting out to couples that are in the middle years-the difficult time in a relationship that is everyday yet long lasting. The story comes alive with insight, intelligence and wit.

Musical Director Bob Moreen
Star in Tribute to Sir Noël Coward (1899-1973)
Chicago’s acclaimed cabaret artists, Suzanne, John, Robert and Bob are thrilled to bring “The Master,” his words and music to New York audiences at New York’s Metropolitan Room. This ensemble will perform some of his many songs, including “Why do the Wrong People Travel?” “I’ve Been to a Marvelous Party,” “If Love Were All,” “Mad About the Boy,” “Mrs. Worthington,” “Ziguener,” “Nina,” “Matelot,” as well as scenes from his brilliant plays.
“Suzanne Petri happens to be the exception that proves the rule, her work at once dramatically penetrating and musically evocative… superb singer John Eskola, veteran pianist-vocalist Bob Moreen and formidable actor-narrator Robert Breuler. Together, these artists interchangeably performed…the evening sketched the arc of Coward's career. Indeed, it would be difficult to imagine many American artists who could get closer to the British tone and style of this work than Petri and friends.”
Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
In a career that spanned two world wars and seventy-five years, Coward was an English composer, lyricist, playwright, screenwriter, actor, Las Vegas cabaret star and more, publishing more than 50 plays and composing hundreds of songs during his lifetime.
Throughout all, he maintained what he considered his greatest talent: his charm. Suzanne and her cohorts will perform some of his many songs, including “Why do the Wrong People Travel?” “I’ve Been to a Marvelous Party,” “If Love Were All,” “Mad About the Boy,” as well as scenes from his brilliant plays
