Profiles Theatre continues its 2009-2010 Season with KILLER JOE by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tracy Letts, directed by Steppenwolf ensemble member Rick Snyder. The production runs January 14 – February 28, 2010, at Profiles Theatre, 4147 N. Broadway.
KILLER JOE focuses on the Smith family, a greedy, vindictive clan of Texans who hatch a plan to murder their estranged matriarch to cash in on her insurance policy. Unable to bring themselves to do the deed, they hire Killer Joe Cooper, a full-time cop and part-time contract killer. Once he steps into their trailer, their simple plan quickly spirals out of control. Learn more >
And I’m planning on seeing Letts’ August: Osage County when the tour stops by at the Oriental next week. Letts overload? Letts do it!
