Theater on the Lake will put on 'Hit the Wall' this summer

Theater on the Lake, the Chicago Park District-sponsored enterprise offering semi-outdoor shows at Fullerton Avenue on the shore of Lake Michigan, has announced its 2012 season, including another chance to see the sold-out show "Hit the Wall" by The Inconvenience, the Ike Holter drama about the Stonewall riots that sparked long lines of potential patrons this spring outside the Steppenwolf Garage Theatre.

Tickets to all shows are just $17.50, which, in the bizarre economic world of off-Loop theater, is less than it cost to see "Hit the Wall" at the Steppenwolf Garage.

As in recent summers, Theater on the Lake will remount a number of off-Loop hits between June and August.

The slate begins in June with the Sinnerman Ensemble's production of Anna Carini's "Sweet Confinement." That's followed by "Or," a play by Liz Duffy Adams produced by the Caffeine Theatre. "Broke-Ology," a piece by Nathan Louis Jackson staged by  eta Creative Arts, follows thereafter.

In July, Redtwist Theatre will remount its production of "Opus" by Michael Hollinger, followed by a week of improv featured the renowned TJ Jagodowski and Dave Pasquesi. Stage Left is up next next with "Farragut North" by Beau Willimon. Then comes "Hit the Wall," which will run  July 25-29.

Theater on the Lake ends its year with Herman Melville's "Moby Dick," as produced by the Building Stage.

Tickets are on sale June 5. On June 13, the venerable venue will celebrate its diamond anniversary with an opening-night party.
