Crime Scene: A Chicago Anthology

Crime Scene: A Chicago Anthology debuted at Collaboraction in the winter of 2013 to critcial acclaim. It sold so well in it's original run that add a 3 week extension that sold out. This unique and gritty study of crime in the city of Chicago from our past to our present caught the attention of NPR, PBS, and even the mayor's office. The Chicago Parks District even jumped on board and has funded two full summer tours of the show and will sponsor another in the summer of 2015.


Crime Scene approached the subject of crime and violence in a visceral and never seen before way by combining real-life interviews, headlines, cases, and testimonies to craft a show that was both tragically heartbreaking and breathtakingly inspiring.
