On this new podcast, Paul goes behind the curtain with the cast of “Southern Gothic” playing at the Windy Cindy Playhouse located in his lower level space in Petterino (Dearborn and Randolph). Spectators who have become invisible guests attend the 40e birthday party for Suzanne Wellington (played by Amy Malcom) and given at Beau Coutier (played by Max Stewart) and his wife Ellie (played by Sarah Grant). The three actors join in this conversation. Beneath the simple anniversary plot point, there are many secrets and plots that reveal problems for all the characters. The play is set in the warm surroundings of an Atlanta home, circa 1961, and the audience is literally seated along the walls of the various rooms in the house watching the action. You can sit in the dining room (yes, where snacks for party guests are laid out for members of the public to enjoy), or move into the living room or kitchen. Action and dialogue occur in all of these areas, but never fear, by the end of the show you’ll have a good idea of the whole story no matter which parts you’ve watched. Known as Immersive Theater, this is truly one of Windy City Playhouse’s great creations and is not to be missed. Even for people who don’t really like going to the theater, or who have had little exposure to it, this is the show to see! Tickets can be purchased at www.windycityplayhouse.com.
