William Peter Blatty’s Legion Play Kicks Off In Chicago


See Exorcist III stage show this weekend

Back in late January, we told you about a new stage play kicking off at Chicago’s Viaduct Theater for William Peter Blatty’s Legion (which was also adapted into the underrated The Exorcist III).

The premiere is upon us this weekend! Previews begin March 13th and 14th, and the opening is Monday, March 15th, 2009, 7:30pm at Chicago’s Viaduct Theater located at 3111 N. Western Ave. Running Thursday thru Sunday until April 18th, 2009. Performance times are Thursday thru Saturday at 7:30pm, and Sunday at 3pm.

Directed by WildClaw company member Anne Adams, and featuring company members Brian Amidei and Scott T. Barsotti, with Len Bajenski, Ariel Brenner, Casey Cunningham, Vic Doylida, Matt Engle, Sasha Gioppo, Lindsay Nance, Elaine Robinson, Cheryl Roy, Erika Schmidt, HB Ward and Josh Zagoren.

More than a decade after the death of Father Karras, Lieutenant Kinderman is faced with a series of grisly murders resembling the work of a dead serial killer. Kinderman’s investigation brings him face to face with the essence of true evil, and its origin. WildClaw is thrilled to present the World Premiere of William Peter Blatty’s Legion, the bestselling sequel to Blatty’s The Exorcist. This terrifying supernatural thriller continues WildClaw theatre’s quest of bringing intelligent and imaginative horror to the Chicago stage.

Anne Adams, who recently directed the critical and commercial hit Scott Barsotti’s The Revenants, has once again assembled a remarkable production team for Legion. Adapted by WildClaw Artistic Director Charley Sherman, with set design by Nic Dimond, costume design by Allison Greaves, lighting design by Paul Foster, sound design by Scott Tallarida and Mikhail Fiksel, movement design by Karen Tarjan, and special blood effects by Fraser Coffeen.

Tickets $10 – $20, with student discounts available. For more information, please visit the official website right her!
