LOOKOUT AND THE PLAYGROUND THEATER PRESENT
OCTOBER 03 - OCTOBER 10, 2016
Doors open 7:30pm
By Jo Cattell, Lorena Diaz and Wendy Mateo
For two nights this fall, Steppenwolf’s 1700 theatre is transformed into Tumbao, a family bar and the best place for a salsa night, baptism, séance or wedding reception. Unbeknownst to the owners, the community has decided to make the Tumbao family the basis for a radionovela, broadcast from the bar itself. By transmitting to the rest of the world what happens within Tumbao’s walls they hope to share the infectious energy of the family to keep the community thriving through its desperate fight against gentrification.
