“Wuthering Heights” presented by Lifeline Theatre, opens 9/10!
When I first heard that Lifeline Theatre, one of my favorite Chicago theater companies, was opening their 2010-2011 season with an adaptation of Emily Bronte’s “Wuthering Heights,” I proclaimed one thing loudly – I was there.
The saga of Catherine and Heathcliff has been one of my favorite books since I first recall reading it in junior high. Heck, I even watched the bad made-for-MTV version starring Erika Christiansen (and a pre-Gray’s Anatomy Katherine Heigl, but I doubt anyone remembers that.) Lifeline is known for doing a lot with a little, and their production promises lots of highly physical theater. If it’s anything like their world premiere adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “Neverwhere” last season, it’ll be worth the trip – and then some.
So, this show opens soon and I will absolutely be in attendance.
