We gratefully acknowledge Wally Stearns for generously providing the space for this reunion.

In the fall of 1989, a group of students led by UIC Theatre Director Bill Raffeld boarded a flight to Moscow. Thus marked the beginning of a years-long exchange between UIC’s theatre program and the Theatre of Moscow Southwest. This year, we’re celebrating the success and lasting impact of this relationship between two theatres.
