The Day on Which a Man Dies

We’re not the only ones in town currently working on a Tennessee Williams premiereSummerNITE, the Northern Illinois Theatre Ensemble, is opening the world premiere of The Day on Which a Man Dies tonight at Links Hall in Wrigleyville.

The web site describes the show (written in 1959) as a “visionary text”:

[d]irectly influenced by Butoh dance and Yukio Mishima, to whom the work was dedicated, the context is a Happening, with echoes of Kabuki and the anarchic Gutai art movement of 1950’s Japan.

I won’t be able to see it myself until next weekend; if you’re able to check it out before me let us know what you think.
