Destiny of Desire

Telenovela fans and followers of all things over the top and sudsy, give thanks. The Goodman Theatre's high-flying play Destiny of Desire, delivers enough drama, music and plain fun that you might be tempted to ditch the TV for theater. This flawless musical supplies all the best elements of telenovelas, layered with stellar theater production.

Gloria

Chicago is noted as a theater lover's paradise, and Goodman Theatre supplies a prime example of why with the enthralling 4-star satire Gloria (playing now through February 19). This startling peek into the insular walls of print media, and the ways popular culture and societal norms influence it, will leave a lasting impression long after the show is over.

Goodman Theatre presents Another Word For Beauty

In popular culture, the South American country of Columbia has long been associated with images of drug trafficking, beauty pageants and political strife. Its a one-dimensional trope that keeps haunting Columbia, especially with media spectacles like the recent Miss Universe debacle. Academy Award-nominated director Jose Rivera (Motorcycle Diaries)  borrows from real life and manages to cram all of these elements into the multi-faceted musical Another Word For Beauty, playing at Goodman Theatre through February 21.
