Co-presented by The Lyric Opera of Chicago
TV and film star Richard E. Grant (LOGAN, JACKIE, GIRLS, GAME OF THRONES) visits the Music Box Theatre for a special one-night-only 30th anniversary screening of the cult classic film WITHNAIL AND I, which launched Grant’s career in 1987. The British black comedy follows two unemployed young actors during what is supposed to be a relaxing getaway weekend to a country cottage. Immediately following the screening, Grant will participate in a Q&A with the audience about the film, his career and first time performing in Chicago for Lyric Opera’s My Fair Lady.
Richard E. Grant is currently in Chicago for Lyric Opera’s grand-scale company premiere of My Fair Lady, starring as Henry Higgins alongside Lisa O’Hare as Eliza Doolittle. My Fair Lady plays April 28-May 21, 2017, at Lyric’s Civic Opera House, 20 N. Wacker Drive. Tickets start at $22 and are available now at www.lyricopera.org/myfairlady or at 312-827-5600.
