Haymarket! A New Folk Musical!

Reception to follow around 9:00 p.m.

Called by the Chicago Sun-Times "Beautiful, superb, a great success, big, sweeping and brash, a historical mini-epic that just might manage to leave you in tears," Haymarket: A New Folk Musical tells the true story of Chicago’s infamous Haymarket Affair. Anarchist labor leaders clash with a brutal police force in a battle for survival, and violent rebels armed with dynamite threaten to destroy the labor movement before it starts. The most important untold story in American history, brought to life by a company of twelve actor-musicians, singing and playing through the folk, Americana, and bluegrass score.

First presented in 2016 to a sold-out run and critical acclaim, as well as a Jeff nomination for Best New Musical, Haymarket has been further developed by Underscore Theatre, working with director Nick Thornton and Jeff Award-winning music director Robert Ollis to create a brand-new theatrical experience, where actors create the band, immersing the audience in the music of the revolution! In operation since 2011, Underscore Theatre Company is a not-for-profit performing arts organization in Chicago, IL, and was founded by Carls Brendan Siegfried '09, Laura Stratford '09, Alex Higgin-Houser '10, and David Kornfeld '11.

The show begins at 7:30 pm. A reception will take place after the show (around 9 pm) at Big Star on Damen and Milwaukee.

Cost: Tickets are available for purchase here at the student rate of $18 per person (including fees). Please purchase by July 20 for the July 21 performance.

Directions: Google Maps can be used for directions to the Den Theatre and to the reception at Big Star. When using public transportation, get off at the Damen Blue Line stop.
