A special, one-night only staged reading at FitzGerald’s!

6:00 PM
at FitzGerald’s, 6615 Roosevelt Road, Berwyn

As we toast “goodbye” to Daley, WAKE takes us back to a not-so fictional time in the 80s as the political machine maneuvers to regain power after the sudden death of the city’s first black mayor. Cash bar and drama at this unforgettable WAKE at Berwyn’s own nationally-recognized music venue, FitzGerald’s.

250 100 Club members and 16th Street supporters packed into Fitzgerald’s for a sold-out show!

A cast of heavy hitters led by Randy Steinmeyer (A Steady Rain), Guy Massey and Steppenwolf Ensemble member James Vincent Meredith showed us how it’s done: Chicago-style, just one week before the mayoral primary.
