Sufjan Stevens’ Illinois is getting a musical theatre adaptation, introduced as a part of the performing arts collection at Bard Faculty’s Fisher Heart. Justin Peck, who choreographed Stephen Spielberg’s West Aspect Story replace, is directing and choreographing the present, which runs for a number of dates in late June and early July. Illinois can also be slated for an as but unannounced run in Chicago later in the summertime. See the entire Bard dates under.
Working with Stevens’ songs, Peck wrote a narrative for the present with Jackie Sibblies Drury, who gained the 2019 Pulitzer Prize in Drama for her play Fairview. Launched in 2005, Illinois was the second installment of Stevens’ purported efforts to file an album in honor of all 50 of the USA. Solely Michigan acquired the identical remedy, in 2003. Stevens most not too long ago issued A Newbie’s Thoughts in 2021, a collaboration with Angelo De Augustine. His newest solo album is 2020’s The Ascension.
