    Victory Gardens Theater, the wonderful performance venue located in the historic space once known as the Biograph Theater—where famed gangster John Dillinger met his immortal end—will be introducing debuting playwrights Chaz Ebert and Stacy Janiak, and honoring Justina Machada and Phillips Too at its annual fundraiser, Chicago Stories Gala, on Saturday, October 5th, in honor of its 45th anniversary. The evening will present two new theatrical works, while also awarding two artists selected as this year's Impact Honorees. 

    Both of the 2019 honorees are accomplished actresses: Justina Machado, a Chicago born actress best known for her roles on the celebrated reimagined “One Day at a Time,” “Six Feet Under,” and “Queen of the South”; and Phillipa Soo, the Tony Award-nominated actress known for originating the role of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton in Broadway's "Hamilton." 

    The guest playwrights whose one-act plays will have their world premiere during the Gala are Stacy Janiak, Managing Partner and Chief Growth Officer at Deloitte, and our site's publisher, Chaz Ebert, CEO of Ebert Digital LLC, head of the Ebert Film Festival and President of the Roger and Chaz Ebert Foundation.


    "We are incredibly honored to have Chaz serving as a Guest Playwright at this year's Chicago Stories Gala," said Erica Daniels, Executive Director at Victory Gardens Theater. "She embodies the core values that we celebrate here at Victory Gardens Theater. Her commitment to empowering women, giving voice to women and children through education and the arts, and her passion for spreading empathy, kindness, compassion, and forgiveness are to be lauded. It is our privilege to recognize Chaz alongside Stacy Janiak, Justina Machado, and Phillipa Soo, three other trailblazing women producing powerful work onstage and off." 

    The 2019 Chicago Stories Gala will take place on October 5th at the Four Seasons Hotel, 120 E. Delaware Place, beginning with a 6pm VIP experience, followed by cocktails at 6:30pm and the show joined with dinner at 7:30pm.
