Studs' Place

Studs' Place

Join us for the final installment of Studs’ Place, a “new” episode of the classic 1950s Studs Terkel TV show! Working from a one-page scenario and improvising the dialogue just like Studs, the cast (Roger Payne, Chris Rathjen, Nick Wagner, and Rachel Wilson) perform in the front bar while the audience watches a video feed in the back, simulating the effect of a live television broadcast. Following the episode are readings by Thomas Dyja (The Third Coast) and Mark Guarino (Christian Science Monitor), an interview with Dyja and Guarino by Bill Savage, and a musical performance by the Lawrence Peters Outfit. Studs' Place is the closing event of "Let's Get Working: Chicago Celebrates Studs Terkel," a three-day festival at the Logan Center for the Arts. See studs.uchicago.edu for more details.
