Event Spotlight: Heat Wave Opening

Tonight the stage version of Eric Klinenberg's sociological study Heat Wave officially opens at Pegasus Players. The show is a recreation of the choas that occurred between medical examiners, health officials, reporters, politicians and citizens when hundreds of people died owing to the extreme heat in the summer of 1995. Tickets for tonight's 8pm show are $17 and can be purchased online or by calling 773-878-9761. Pegasus Players is located at 1145 W. Wilson Ave. in the O'Rourke Center at Truman College.
