There are times in everyone’s lives where the everyday becomes too much and we feel the urge to escape it all by running away. BoHo's Fugitive Songs is an innovative song cycle focusing on people who have given in to that desire and find themselves on the run, emotional baggage and all. These characters include a disgruntled Subway sandwich employee, a jilted ex-cheerleader, a pair of Patty Hearst fanatics, a stoner forced to rob a convenience store against his will, and many others. The award-winning writing team of Miller and Tysen blend traditional folk music with contemporary pop and gospel to create a moving portrait of restlessness in America.
BoHo Theatre is proud to once again be part of Chicago Theatre Week, which celebrates the rich tradition of theatre-going in Chicago. Returning for the fourth year, Chicago Theatre Week 2016 will be held February 11-21 and will include specially-priced tickets to more than 100 shows. Visit the CTW website for more details.
