Clowns relate the true story of Chicago's 1903 Iroquois Theatre fire in a stunning and funny revival of a show called Burning Bluebeard at Theater Wit. We revisit the story. Read an Artbeat blog about the play and watch Chicago Sun-Times Theater Critic Hedy Weiss review the play in the web extra video below.
Dec. 30, 2014 is the 110th anniversary of fire, and Burning Bluebeard will have a special matinee performance that day. The play runs through Jan. 5, 2015.
