Chicago Tribune//Morgan Greene: “Welcome to the future home of Ellen Gates Starr High School,” announces Albany Park Theater Project co-founder David Feiner, smiling, unable to stand still.
Chicago Reader//Aimee Levitt: In a lot of ways, Ellen Gates Starr High School in Logan Square isn’t much different from other CPS neighborhood schools. Enrollment and funding are down, and the school is on probation: the results of standardized tests from this year, currently in session, will determine whether it stays open.
Chicago Sun-Times//Hedy Weiss: Think of it as a fantasia on life in a Chicago public high school, performed throughout the three floors of an actual school building by actors who are either still in high school or have just begun college.
