Bernie and Mikey's Trip to the Moon at 59E59 Theaters

Bernie and Mikey are perched on the edge of adulthood—a sister and brother trapped between the lives they crave and the circumstances they were born into. The children of a working class Italian family in 1990s Chicago, Mikey is torn between unrealized potential and loyalty to his sister, while Bernie, living with a cognitive disability, longs to find her voice but faces a world unwilling to listen. The world premiere debut of playwright Scott Aiello, Bernie and Mikey's Trip to the Moon is a heart-wrenching comedy about one family's coming of age, as they reckon with what they're willing to sacrifice to protect one another—and what they won't.

Vivian's Music, 1969 at 59E59 Theaters

Inspired by real events, in 1969, in a segregated city in the American Midwest bursting with racial tension, a 14-year-old black girl, Vivian, was shot by a white cop, igniting one of the worst race riots in American history. No one knew anything about her: just her name, her age, and how she died. This fantasia for two actors gives Vivian a life, a family, a love of music, and a reason to live; the jazz legend who's back in the neighborhood might be her real father. Can they find each other before the city explodes?
