Windy City Playhouse Artistic Director Amy Rubenstein announced that the theater will present the world premiere of Sons of Hollywooda searing take on 1920's Hollywood through the eyes of gay silent-film stars Ramon Novarro and William Haines.
The production's run will begin Jan. 26, 2022, at Windy City Playhouse's flagship location, 3014 W. Irving Park Rd.
Set in the early 1920s, the production centers on Hollywood as it brims with risque films, off-screen scandals, enormous parties and glamorous opening nights. Novarro and Haines enjoyed lives as Hollywood royalty, steeped in the luxury of booze, sex, prostitutes and more drama off-screen than on. When the Motion Picture Production Code brings a swift and sudden end to their lifestyles and the silver screen is purged of its openly gay stars, Novarro and Haines face a hard, oppressive reality: They must choose love or money.
The cast includes, among others, Trey DeLuna, as Novarro; Adam Jennings, as Haines; and Abby Lee, as Joan Crawford/Lucille LeSueur.
Tickets, which include two seating options, are on sale now. For more information, visit www.WindyCityPlayhouse.com .
