“Fondly Do We Hope…Fervently Do We Pray”

Feb. 25
IU Auditorium

In a work commissioned by IU Auditorium and Chicago’s Ravinia Festival, renowned choreographer Bill T. Jones (Tony
Award winner for “Spring Awakening”) brings together dancers, an actor, live musicians playing an original score,
projected films and text from Shakespeare, the Bible and Walt Whitman in an exploration of the impact of Abraham Lincoln’s
words, deeds and ideas. “The good man,” says Jones. “What does he have to say to us today? Are we good people?
Am I a good man?” For a fascinating look at Jones’ creation of the piece, click here. Details on the show here.
