A voice made for radio takes center stage: Studs Terkel’s signature tome gets the Broadway treatment

February 2–May 8: Wicked’s Wizard, Gene Weygandt, and his cast mate Barbara Robertson (Madame Morrible) go from one Stephen Schwartz/Broadway in Chicago show to another, trading in their emerald attire for blue-collar duds in this musical adaptation of Studs Terkel’s ode to working-class Americans. With the vocal powerhouse E Faye Butler also punching in, expect a production that’s more joy than toil.

Previews 2/15–3/1. All tickets $67.50–$77.50. Broadway Playhouse, 175 E Chestnut. broadwayinchicago.com.
