SPIKE HEELS
by Theresa Rebeck
January 23 – February 8, 2015
Presented on the West Stage at the Raven Theatre Complex

The Brown Paper Box Co. is excited to announce the cast for their upcoming production, SPIKE HEELS by Theresa Rebeck. The show will run Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2:00 PM from January 23–February 8 at Raven Theatre in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood (6157 N. Clark St.). Ticketing information and more will be posted at www.brownpaperbox.org.

SPIKE HEELS is a contemporary comedy of manners that pits a volatile young woman against a lawyer, an academic, and the latter’s old-money fiancée as they address issues of sexual harassment and the possibility of a four-sided love triangle. This updated take on Pygmalion by award-winning playwright/screenwriter Theresa Rebeck (NBC’s Smash, Seminar, Mauritius) deftly explores class and gender politics with honesty, passion, and wit.

Director Stephanie Rohr states, “SPIKE HEELS is a comedy with serious messages about feminism, class, and relationships that still ring true 25 years after it was written. It is an opportunity to showcase both a great female playwright and four strong, funny, and charismatic actors.”

The cast includes Jillian Weingart (Little Shop of Horrors, Woodstock Opera House; Cabaret, Brightside Theatre; A New Brain, The Brown Paper Box Co.) as Georgie,  Jesse Dornan (Both Your Houses, Remy Bumppo; Short Shakespeare! A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Chicago Shakes [u/s]; Making God Laugh, Fox Valley Repertory) as Andrew, Charles Askenaizer (Run Chris Run, Stone Soup Theatre Co.; Romeo and Juliet, Teatro Vista; The Tempest, City Lit), as Edward, and Whitney Morse (The Children’s Hour, Pride Films and Plays; Down Range, Genesis Theatricals; Trafford Tanzi, Prologue Theatre Company) as Lydia.

The production team includes Stephanie Rohr* (director), Justin Harner* (assistant director), Liz Hoffman (costume designer), Kiri Palm (stage manager), Justin Castellano (lighting designer), Sara Heymann (set/properties designer), Michelle Kritselis* (dramaturg), Anna Schutz* (production manager), M. William Panek* (casting associate and box office manager), Charlie Sheets* (graphic designer), and Randolph Baldwin (production intern).
