Our 2022-23 is filled with star-studded casts. Starting with The Garbologists, starring the “dashingly stylish” (WTTW) Chicagoland Theatre Native Luigi Sottile (Danny) and Tiffany Renee Johnson (Marlowe), who critics are calling “a brilliant, demanding force” who “directors need to discover” (Let’s Play).
Next, in Part Three of the Christmas at Pemberley Series, Georgiana and Kitty, we have the talents of Janyce Elenia Caraballo (Georgiana Darcy), Samantha Newcomb (Kitty Bennet / Kitty O’Brien), Amanda Drinkall (Elizabeth Darcy), Preeti Thaker (Lydia Wickham / Sarah Darcy), Emma Jo Boyden (Jane Bingley / Emily Grey), Andrea San Miguel (Mary Bennet / Margaret O’Brien), Erik Hellman (Henry Grey) and Yousef Sultani (Fitzwilliam Darcy).
In the new year, Rob Lindley (Andy) and Hamid Dehghani (Farhad) star in Andy Warhol in Iran, which follows the legendary painter who meets a young revolutionary who throws his plans into turmoil and opens his eyes to a world beyond himself.
In this heartfelt story of an Appalachian family’s roots and the music that binds them together, the cast of The Porch on Windy Hill includes: Lisa Helmi Johanson (Mira), David M. Lutken (Edgar), and Morgan Morse (Beckett).
Finally, making a triumphant return to Northlight after critically-acclaimed performances in Intimate Apparel and Songs for Nobodies, join Bethany Thomas (Rosetta Tharpe) in Marie and Rosetta. “Bethany Thomas, the multi-talented actress/singer who has appeared on most of Chicago’s major stages throughout the past two decades, has clearly found the kind of star turn that can change a career, and a life, while unquestionably generating immense happiness, awe and bravos among her audiences” (WTTW).
