When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through Sept. 8 2013
There's a major cleanup on aisle 3 down in Internal Affairs at the Chicago Police Department. Denny and Joey, lifelong friends and veteran cops, are getting grilled because things aren't adding up after a little misunderstanding out in the field. Now there's a lot of blood and bodies on the ground, one of which the guys delivered, personally, into the hands of a serial killer. Most untidy.
And that's before the pair starts singing, and we learn just how dirty two of Chicago's distinctly less-than-finest have gotten in their selective and rather entrepreneurial police work on the scuzzy side of town. Who are the bad guys and what is the law worth once you get it on the street? What moral code can two flawed centurions finally live with—and live without?
In this inaugural production by Honest Pint Theater, Ryan Brock takes on the role Daniel Craig made his Broadway debut in when the show hit Manhattan in 2009. David Henderson plays the Hugh Jackman role from that production. The acting should be intense and at point-blank range, particularly given that it marks the long-awaited return of director C. Glen Matthews to the regional stage. —Byron Woods
