Lincoln Park Events

Lincoln Park Culture Club: Linda Vista
Join the Lincoln Park Culture Club for a world premiere from award-winning playwright Tracy Letts (author of August: Osage County). Tickets include a cocktail at the front bar.

Linda Vista centers around Wheeler. Wheeler is 50. His marriage is over, his job is mundane, and the best years of his life appear to be behind him. A move from the cot in his ex-wife’s garage to his own apartment opens up new possibilities for love and sex-complicated, painful and hilarious. Full of opinions, yet short on self-examination, Wheeler is a modern misanthrope who must reconcile the man he has become with the man he wants to be.
