Harold Washington Cultural Center’s Broadway in Bronzeville series transports beloved productions such as Annie and Langston Hughes’ Black Nativity to its sweeping stage. Adapted from the novel by Fannie Hurst, Imitation of Life tells the tale of two women in the 1930s—one a widowed white woman, the other a black woman hired to be her housekeeper—and their intersecting lives through the years. John Ruffin directs a talented cast as they explore pertinent issues such as race, family, and female independence during the Depression in this textured, pulsating drama.

Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
