This Year is Different

The hard truth is, the impact of the unending shutdown of live theatre, and its mounting collateral damage, has been profound.  Now more than ever, American Stage depends on your support.

Why Give Now?

This year, please consider investing in American Stage. Together we can reimagine, and we can recover. Because when we come together and share stories representing our diverse perspectives and experiences, we expand our world, our differences cease to divide us and we become united through the shared experience of what it is to be human. Thank you for believing in the power of live theatre to help to heal our community.

“The country needs to be healed — it’s not going to be healed from the top, politically. How are we going to heal? Art is the healing force.”

-Robert Redford, 2012

Holiday Classic coming Dec. 18-27

New December Dates Added 

This year, please consider investing in

American Stage.

    WE THE PEOPLE…WILL NOT HAVE OUR DREAMS DEFERRED

    Set on Chicago’s South Side, the plot revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family: son, Walter Lee; his wife, Ruth; his sister, Beneatha; his son, Travis; and matriarch, Lena. When her deceased husband’s insurance money comes through, Mama Lena dreams of moving to a new home and a better neighborhood in Chicago. Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other plans: buying a liquor store and being his own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school. The tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama. The Younger family’s heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.

    WE THE PEOPLE…WILL NOT HAVE OUR DREAMS DEFERRED

    Set on Chicago’s South Side, the plot revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family: son, Walter Lee; his wife, Ruth; his sister, Beneatha; his son, Travis; and matriarch, Lena. When her deceased husband’s insurance money comes through, Mama Lena dreams of moving to a new home and a better neighborhood in Chicago. Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other plans: buying a liquor store and being his own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school. The tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama. The Younger family’s heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
