The featured speaker was Mark Larson, author of Ensemble: An Oral History of Chicago Theater. His talk focused on the legendary St. Nicholas Theater, where the likes of David Mamet and William H Macy could be found and American Buffalo “roamed.” The Saints got their start and their name at this theater 40 years ago.

The premiere of the Saints Talk series is now available on the website. This featured Deb Clapp, head of the League of Chicago Theatres, and Chris Jones, principal critic of the Chicago Tribune, discussing the state of Chicago theater in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and what it may mean for the future. The original video ran 60+ minutes, too large to upload in one file. There are two video files available, and one audio-only file, suitable for listening as a podcast format.
You will need to download and save the file to your computer. You may then play it from that location.
