An eclectic set of shady characters&mdash;crooked coroners, a TV-personality doctor, a femme fatale, and one extraordinarily valuable sculpture&mdash;run roughshod through a hilarious maze of double-crosses and double-identities in this love letter to the underbelly of the Windy City. Professor <em>Rosemary Erickson Johnsen</em> will provide scholarly incites into this production and the &quot;noir&quot; fiction genre.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Reduced priced tickets for the 3:00 p.m. matinee are available through the Raven Foundation.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>More information about this event <a href="http://www.ravenfoundation.org/events/big-lake-big-city-at-lookingglass-theatre/">here.</a></div></p> Fri, 31 May 2013 13:47:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/big-lake-big-city-preshow-lecture-107466
