To meet the high demand for tickets to its galvanic production of “The Royale,” Marco Ramirez’s rhythmically-powered play about boxing, race and more, the American Theater Company, 1909 W. Byron, has added a number of performances (on Wednesday and Sunday evenings) to the final two weeks of its run.
Sadly, the show must close March 29 to permit for final preparations and tech rehearsals for “The Project(s),”—ATC’s upcoming world premiere documentary play on Chicago’s public housing.
The performance schedule for “The Royale” is: Thursdays and Fridays at 8 p.m.; Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; Sundays at 2 p.m.; and additional Wednesdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 5 p.m. from March 18-29. For single tickets for “The Royale” ($48-$60) call (773) 409-4125 or visit http://www.atcweb.org.
