I know very little about Martin McDonagh’s 2003 award-winning play, The Pillowman. However, I do know a coworker who saw a production at Steppenwolf in 2006 and decided she was done with Steppenwolf for a while.
However, by the end of this month, I’ll know I great deal more, as I’m seeing two productions — one by DePaul University at the Greenhouse Center tomorrow night, and one at the beginning of December at Redtwist Theatre.
And this isn’t even one of the top-ten most produced plays of 2009 (it was in 2006).
Have you seen two different productions of the same show within a few weeks of each other? And how did that work out for you?
EDIT (11/5): Due to other commitments, Pillowman at DePaul didn’t happen, unfortunately.
