His powerful collection of oral histories includes interviews with prominent producers, directors, choreographers, designers, dancers, and actors who changed Chicago’s theatrical landscape from 1970 to 2010. In this exclusive CHF program, Young is joined by actor Harry Lennix and resident director of the Goodman Theatre, Chuck Smith, to provide context and commentary for these singularly engrossing stories.
