“London Road by Shattered Globe is about yearning for normalcy in a crisis — and reminds us what off-Loop theater can do.”
“London Road at Shattered Globe Theatre is a captivating display of what this ensemble company does best.”
“Transcendent and hypnotic… This U.S. premiere is a triumph for Shattered Globe.”
“This play not only pushes the envelope of what theatre can be and do, but it tears the envelope into a million tiny pieces and scatters them in the wind. The whole time I was watching it, I felt as if I were seeing a whole new genre being born.”
“If you crave powerful off-Loop theater and support Chicago’s long and proud history of selfless ensemble work, deeply dedicated to honoring actual events and revealing human truths… London Road has so … much to offer.”
“Inventive… Awe-inspiring… an extraordinary and exceptional piece of theatre.”
“There is a wealth of talent packed in the cast of eleven and every performance shines.”
