Profiles Theatre, Chicago, IL
Ten years out of high school, three unhappy friends show up “not-quite-invited” to their classmate’s hotel room for the perfect bachelorette celebration. Half a bathtub of booze later, the former prom queen is melting down, the nice-girl cokehead is on a mission to mend the mauled wedding dress, and the lacerating maid of honor finds her picture-perfect life less stable than it seemed. A smash hit Off- Broadway, Leslye Headland’s shrewd and biting play is an aria to the anxiety and self-loathing of a generation.
Profiles hit production opened in January and has been extended again through May 27.
Directed by Profiles Co-Artistic Director Darrell W. Cox, the cast of Bachelorette includes Profiles’ ensemble member Eric Burgher (A Behanding in Spokane, Kid Sister) along with guest artists Hillary Marren, Linda Augusta Orr, Rakisha Pollard, Amanda Powell and Adam Soule.
