“After playing to sold-out crowds and rave reviews in New York, Cincinnati and Portland, this unique piece of theatre is finally coming home to Chicago where it was born and bred,” comments AFT Artistic Director Andrew Volkoff. “Crystal meth addiction has been a serious national problem for years in the gay community, and especially here in the Midwest. A talented artist and brilliant storyteller, Steven shines a light on addiction that is at once funny and thought provoking, turning his journey down the rabbit hole into a compelling and comedic evening. Virtuosic and soulbaringly honest, Methtacular! is a play that audiences won’t soon forget,” adds Volkoff.
