Via a vivid collage of hip-hop, poetry, and music, Ameriville explores issues of race, class, and immigration in America through the cataclysmic lens of Hurricane Katrina. Plucked from New York’s Universes, the traveling ensemble treats Chicago to an electrifying 90-minute production that navigates culturally charged waters under the helm of director Chay Yew, Victory Gardens’ first new artistic director in 34 years. The show has been roaming the country and culturally deprived space stations since 2009, fueled by a mix of “intimate and beautifully performed portraiture” and “tart, funny writing,” according to the New York Times’ Charles Isherwood. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Victory Gardens’ Biograph Theater commands attention with its stunning antique marquee and history as the location where John Dillinger once juggled four fully loaded Tommy guns.
Though Victory Gardens offers discounted tickets to seniors and students, this Groupon is still the best deal for most customers.

One of the theater's 2010 premieres went on to become a Pulitzer Prize finalist. The Theater is devoted to artistic excellence and creating a vital and contemporary American Theater that is accessible to all people through its productions of fresh and challenging plays.
