The 16th Street Theater located at 6420 16th St., in Berwyn’s Cultural Center has announced its 2013 schedule.

The theater will present five shows under the title “American Dream”

The first show slated to open the season is, “The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs 2.0” (Jan. 10-Feb. 2.) According to the 16th Street Theater website, this show is about America’s most mysterious technology icon turned into a hilarious tale of pride, beauty and lust.

Another big show following “The agony and Ectasy of Steve Jobs 2.0,” is “Empanada for a Dream” (Feb. 14-March 16.)

This show comes to the 16th Street Theater after a sold-out-run at the Barrow Group theatre. It was also performed as part of the Yo Solo theatre festival in Los Angeles. This story follows a love-struck man on the Lower East Side of New York who returns to his childhood home, which brings back funny and scary memories.

Following this hit show is “Living Large in a Mini Kind of Way” (April 4-May 11.) Here Chicago’s all-Latina theatre company Teatro Luna brings its unique mix of humor and honesty to the 16th Street Theater. This sharp exploration of the American dream focuses on two Mexican-American sisters, one assimilating into US culture, the other struggling with citizenship status.

The closing show at the theater will be “Broken Fences” (Sept. 19-Oct. 26.)

Broken Fences examines culture, race and socio-economics in a modern American town with humanity, dignity and humor.
