– CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Jan 14 - Feb 19, 2017 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 2 hours including one intermission

Get ready for the play that will have everyone talking: Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' explosive Pulitzer Prize finalist Gloria.

Style. Status. Success. A group of twentysomething editorial assistants are pursuing it all at one of New York’s most esteemed cultural magazines. When a seemingly normal day at the office turns out to be anything but, these aspiring journalists recognize an opportunity to seize a career-defining moment. In this dark comedy, MacArthur "Genius" grant winner Jacobs-Jenkins skewers the cutthroat, opportunistic culture of modern media.

Goodman Theatre presents The Vineyard Theatre’s acclaimed world premiere production.
