16th Street Theater Weekend
Watch Chicago Tonight on Channel 11 this Tuesday May 18 from 7 - 8 PM when writer/performer Michael Fosberg of INCOGNITO will be a guest. Michael will be on the radio this Sunday between 10-11am but unless you live near Champaign, IL you will have to listen online at WEFT. Michael ALSO was featured in our local Berwyn Life paper. We love having Michael at 16th Street. His post-show discussions with our audiences remind me why I do theater: to inspire and encourage the simple act of open and honest dialogue between strangers gathered together in a dark theater.
Imagine discovering you are not the person you thought you were. That you have a family, a history, an ethnicity you never knew. Michael Fosberg’s search for his father is told in his true one-man show about identity, race, stereotypes and “how, in an instant, one’s sense of self can be altered forever.” – Jack Helbig, Daily Herald “An engrossing and deeply moving trip.. It will shake you to your own roots.”
– Richard Christiansen, Chicago Tribune
