Steppenwolf’s “Visiting Edna” was Downright Disappointing

Somewhat Recommended ***  I was very disappointed with “Visiting Edna”, the end-of-life drama currently on stage at Steppenwolf.  As the story plodded along, I found myself zoning out a couple of times.  In fact, I was so bored, I found myself shifting in my seat more and more, trying to stay focused.  It was a struggle!  Good acting just couldn’t save “Visiting Edna”.  I give it 2 ½ Spotlights.

“Visiting Edna” runs through November 6th in the Downstairs Theatre at Steppenwolf Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted, Chicago.  Running time is 2 hours, 40 minutes, with an intermission.  Performances are Tuesdays through Fridays at 7:30 pm; Saturdays and Sundays at 3:00 pm and 7:30 pm, with select Wednesday matinees.  Tickets range from $20-$89.  Paid parking is available in Steppenwolf’s garage.  FYI (312) 335-1650 or
