Riverview: A Melodrama with Music

Jimmy, Robert u/s


June 22nd to August 2nd, 1992

Goodman Theatre

Written by John Logan

Directed by Robert Falls

Choreographed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge


Set in a turbulent, post-war Chicago, Riverview spans six years beginning on V-J Day and ending in 1951 with another turning point, the Cicero riots. The music-popular Big Band songs of the day by Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Johnny Mercer, Louis Prima and others-will be contrasted with the less-savory aspects of a big and not always harmonious city.
