A Twist of Water

Twist is moving to The Mercury Theater and running until June!

From Chris Jones’ Theater Loop blog at The Chicago Tribune:


The Route 66 Theatre Company production of “A Twist of Water” is transfering to the Mercury Theatre. This very successful show will start performances on Apr. 14 and re-open officially on May 1.  Tickets are already on sale.

It will be the first production at the 300-seat Mercury Theatre since Walter Stearns took over the theater. This is not a straight rental deal; Stearns’ theater is sharing the burden of producing with Route 66.

The deal came together quickly, and when “A Twist of Water” closed at Theatre Wit Saturday night, the set was moved over directly to the Mercury on 3745 N. Southport Ave.

Penned by the young writer Caitlin Montanye Parrish and directed by Erica Weiss, “A Twist of Water” sold out virtually every seat at Theatre Wit. It deals both with the history and spirit of Chicago, and with the lives of a group of struggling modern-day Chicagoans.

An early performance was attended by Rahm Emanuel, Chicago’s mayor elect.
