Theatre Design and Production’s Costume Professor, Jacqueline Firkins, costume designed Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex translated by Nicholas Rudall and directed by Charles Newell in a beautiful production that ran November 7- December 8 at the Court Theatre in Chicago and it received excellent reviews.
“If you’ve seen Court Theatre Artistic Director Charles Newell helm a Rudall translation before … you know to expect an emotionally pulverizing tale of gods, mortals and deadly hubris.” —Crain’s Chicago
★★★★ “Court Theatre serves up A MASTERPIECE” —Chicago Sun-Times
“A STARK MARVEL … Court’s production renders the ancient tragedy with stunning visual impact.” —Newcity Stage
“Newell’s show is, as is typical at this venerable Hyde Park theater, RICH, STYLISH, complicated and restlessly wrought, constantly in dialogue with the issues on our minds …” —Chicago Tribune
