The Illinois Central College Theatre Program presents Craig Lucas’ Blue Window, opening April 12 for seven performances in the studio theatre of the ICC Performing Arts Center, located on the East Peoria Campus.
This dramatic comedy was a long-running off-Broadway hit that takes place before, during and after a dinner party, the guests of which are revealed with touching comic irony as a cross-section of modern day humanity. The colorful cast includes a narcissistic actor, a parachute instructor, an aspiring songwriter, a secretary and a lesbian couple.
