Stud’s Place: Episode 4, “Touch and Go”

May 11, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for the final installment of Studs’ Place, a “new” episode of the classic 1950s Studs Terkel television 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 of The Hideout while the audience watches a video feed in the back, simulating the effect of a live television broadcast. Following the episode are a reading by Thomas Dyja (The Third Coast), an interview with Dyja by Bill Savage, and a musical performance of Studs’ favorite blues and jazz by Justin Amolsch and his band.

Studs’ Place is the closing event of “Let’s Get Working: Chicago Celebrates Studs Terkel”.
