"Blind Date" Play and Discussion with Goodman Theatre

Ken Adelman, Former Director, United States Arms Control and Disarmament Agency; Jonathan L. Green , Literary Manager, Goodman Theatre. Moderated by Ivo H. Daalder.

Before Twitter, Tinder and 24/7 news, two of history’s most enigmatic leaders—Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev—meet to halt the arms race. A crafty game of one-upmanship ensues, while their wives engage in a passive-aggressive tango over tea. This compulsively fascinating, slyly comic backstage glimpse of a 20th century landmark event. 

Join the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and Goodman Theatre for a performance of Blind Date by Cuban-American playwright Rogelio Martinez, and a preview discussion on how US-Russian relations have altered since the Cold War era.
