Ellison’s “Invisible Man” Finally Makes the Stage, at Chicago’s Court Theatre

Ralph Ellison apparently went to his grave convinced that Invisible Man could never work as anything but a novel, and he may well have had a point – that book, while astonishingly brilliant, is knots and loops within knots and loops, and each layer just leads to another.

Teagle F. Bougere plays the titular role; the show runs through February 19. (FULL ARTICLE: Chris Jones, Theater Loop, Chicago Tribune)
