Chicago theater artists have transformed Chicago Children’s Theatre, 100 S. Racine Ave., into a bright new beacon of hope meant to lift the spirits of the people as they continue to shelter due to the coronavirus (COVID-190.
Check out Chicago Children’s Theatre any evening from 7 to 11 p.m. to see a larger-than-life, multi-color, bright new window installation that changes the colors of the rainbow around the life-affirming message “Everything will be okay.”
The window installation was programmed and installed by Chicago Children’s Theatre staff and artists using paper, stencils, and LED lights pulled from the theater’s existing production stock.
Or, tune to CCTv, Chicago Children’s Theatre’s new YouTube channel, where a new music video shares a visual symphony of rainbow colors rotating across the theater’s windows with the comforting message “Everything will be okay.” The music for the video, Rainbow of Colors, is by and performed by Chicago musician Nick Davio, and featuring Lindsay Weinberg.
The “Everything will be okay” message is an homage to and translation of the Italian phrase “Andrà tutto bene,” which children in Italy have been hanging in their windows with hand-drawn pictures of rainbows.
