Barrel of Monkeys, one of Chicago’s premier arts-education organizations, announced today it will officially change its name to PlayMakers Laboratory Theatre. The change follows a year-long journey of engaging discussion and reflection among board members, staff, company members and outside stakeholders. As Playmakers unveils its new brand, the company’s unique in-school programming and long-running public revue, That’s Weird, Grandma, will not change.
Tony Award nominee Maria Dizzia will star in the Chicago engagement on the National Tour of Heidi Schreck’s Tony Award nominated play and Pulitzer Prize finalist What the Constitution Means to Me, directed by Oliver Butler. What the Constitution Means to Me will play Broadway In Chicago’s Broadway Playhouse (175 E. Chestnut) for a limited engagement March 4 through April 12, 2020.
