READ: Dael Orlandersmith play to premiere at Goodman

New Works Lab playwright Dael Orlandersmith’s world premiere, Lady in Denmark will be featured in the Goodman Theatre’s 2016-2017 season. This commissioned piece is an ode to soul singer Billie Holiday and includes many of her greatest hits.  Lady in Denmark is directed by Victory Garden artistic director Chay Yew and runs May 18 through June 19.

Pultizer finalist and Obie Award Winner Dael Orlandersmith is the playwright for this season’s New Works Lab piece, Some of the Things Inside.  The workshop production will premiere at the PPAS auditorium on April 13th through April 16th, and the Drama Class of 2016 will also present a benefit performance at Joe’s Pub on April 18th. Orlandersmith was also recently awarded the 2016 Flora Roberts Award, which awards distinguished work in theater and encourages the dramatist’s continuation of that work.
