Dueling Critics: The History Boys

Our Dueling Critics Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman tackle the Tony-award winning The History Boys, now playing for the first time in Chicago at TimeLine Theatre. The play revolves around two teachers and eight young men preparing for the exams that will hopefully get them into Oxford or Cambridge. The audience is allowed to ponder the larger existential questions of what teaching is supposed to be about.

Music Button: Fila Brasilia, "Airlock Holmes", from the CD OmLounge 3, (Om records)
