Belarus Free Theatre’s Being Harold Pinter

Last night I had the opportunity to see Belarus Free Theatre’s production of “Being Harold Pinter” at the Goodman Theatre and let me tell you, It was unlike anything I’ve seen before. This is a truly moving piece of theater that needs to be seen while it’s here in Chicago for the next month.

And don’t just take my word for it – the critics agree:

Chicago Tribune

“And there’s no question these gifted, brave actors from Belarus, who surely deserve the freedom to make their art and say what they need to say, regardless of governmental opinion, have earned to the right to tell their truths. No better place than in Chicago.” – Chris Jones

Chicago Sun-Times

“One thing is certain: The plight of the Belarus Free Theatre should not in any way detract from the brilliance of its artistry, which is on display to full effect in ‘Being Harold Pinter.’” – Hedy Weiss

You don’t want to be the person to miss out on this one, trust me.
