*** Recommended *** “The House That Will Not Stand” is a history play about free women of color in 1813 New Orleans. I really expected to be blown away by the play because of the compelling story, the level of talent on stage and the all-female cast. Instead of loving it, I ended up disappointed because I couldn’t hear/understand a lot of the dialogue. I give “The House That Will Not Stand” 3 Spotlights.
“The House That Will Not Stand” runs through July 10th at Victory Gardens Biograph Theatre, 2433 N. Lincoln Avenue, Chicago. Running time is 2 hours, 15 minutes, with an intermission.
