Doug George of The Chicago Tribune interviewed Artistic Director and star of A Twist of Water on the transfer and grand re-opening of TWIST at The Mercury Theater. Check out the whole article HERE.

“We sort of realized our place as a Chicago play — and how much it speaks to the city.” – Stef Tovar

“By playwright Caitlin Montanye Parrish and Route 66 Theatre Company, its initial run sold out at Theater Wit. It extended for a week and sold out again. Further extensions weren’t possible in that space, says artistic director Stef Tovar, who also stars as Noah, so a deal was quickly put together to move to the Mercury Theater; the set was trucked over within days and it will be the first production in the 300-seat venue since L. Walter Stearns took over. But the show had to take a couple of weeks off to readjust and let cast member Lili-Anne Brown direct “Passing Strange” for Bailiwick Chicago.”

“We didn’t want to lose momentum,” Tovar said, “but we just couldn’t start as quickly as we wanted.”

But we’re back now! A Twist of Water officially re-opens at The Mercury Theater on Sunday, May 1st, and will run through June 5th. There are three remaining preview performances 4/28-4/30. Get your tickets HERE or call 773-325-1700.
