Chicago Shakespeare Theater: Judgment Day


“Landing all the jokes… Moritz von Stuelpnagel tackles darkly funny materials with a shrewd balance of heightened reality, warped sitcom & underlying pathos”

–Hollywood Reporter

Emmy and Tony Award-winner Jason Alexander (of Seinfeld fame) makes his Chicago stage debut in a hilariously irreverent world premiere comedy staged by Broadway director Moritz von Stuelpnagel and written by award-winning TV screenwriter Rob Ulin. Alexander plays Sammy Campo, a staggeringly corrupt, morally bankrupt lawyer who’s threatened with eternal damnation by a terrifying angel after a near-death experience. In a desperate attempt to redeem himself, Sammy forms an unlikely bond with a Catholic priest who is having his own crisis of faith. Filled with razor-sharp wit, this deliciously devious comedy rollicks through the timeless questions of Western philosophy—“morality,” “faith,” and “Are people any damn good?”
