Imitation of Life (Broadway in Bronzeville)

Harold Washington Cultural Center's Broadway in Bronzeville series transports beloved productions such as Annie and Langston Hughes' Black Nativity to its sweeping stage. Adapted from the novel by Fannie Thurst, Imitation of Life tells the tale of two women in the 1930's -- one a white widowed woman, and the other a black woman hired to be her housekeeper and their intersecting lives through the years. John Ruffin directs a talented cast as they explore pertinent issues such as race, family and female independence during the Depression in this textured, pulsating drama.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Approximate running time is three hours and two intermissions. The play starts at 5p

    Good evening. As your event host, let me first begin by apologizing for us being able to actually meet up. Chaos and being disorganized is an extreme understatement. However, despite the many problems of the facility and production team, I hope that everyone was able to enjoy the performance. This is my favorite film and I have mixed reviews but am quite interested to hear feedback from you all.

      You did great La Toya by just making the effort of making it known the play was here. I enjoyed it. The dancing and singing performances in the first half were awesome.

      You don't need to apologize. The Harold Washington Cultural Center was a disaster not the meetup. I was told there was no will call and just allowed in. Inside it was pure chaos!! I enjoyed the show and bumped into a few people from the meetup by accident!

    It is quite chaotic and unorganized so... I've been waiting and trying to find you all but only have one member. If you are not here, know the will call lines are long but let them know you have VIP if you purchased that option and it will expedite your entry.
