“Jerry Maguire, hang up your cell phone; Ari Gold, park your Ferrari. Make room for the super sports agent of ‘King Liz'”
– NEW YORK THEATRE
In the fast-paced, cut-throat world of sports agents, Liz is not letting anyone discount her skill — and most certainly not because of her race or her sex. But when a volatile young client steps way out of line, “King Liz” may finally have met her match. This summer, the Playhouse presents the Chicago premiere of this wise-cracking portrait of a woman in a man’s world.
Enhance your Playhouse experience by attending one of our special events!
- NIGHTCAPS ~ Each week, following the Wednesday evening performance of KING LIZ (approx. 9:30PM) one member of the cast or creative team will be leading a fireside chat about the artistic process – a great, casual chance to connect one-on-one with the artists involved.
- TALKBACKS ~ Following select performances, we will host talk-backs in our theater featuring members of our cast, creative team, and community. These slightly more traditional Q&As are ideal to hear from a broad array of artists about the creative process.
- CONNECT ONLINE ~ Want to learn more about our creative process, but can’t attend events in person? Follow our blog for exclusive, behind-the-scenes content.
