Showbiz Chicago favorite STEF TOVAR returns to discuss his upcoming role as Yossi Beilin in OSLO. Winner of the 2017 Tony Award for Best Play by J.T. Rogers, OSLO focuses on the back-channel negotiations in the development of the pivotal 1990s Peace Accords between Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization. It is a humorous, surprising, and inspiring true story about the people inside politics, and the incredible progress that is possible when we focus on what makes us human—together. OSLO will make its Chicago premiere with TimeLine Theatre’s production at Broadway In Chicago’s Broadway Playhouse (175 E. Chestnut) for a limited six-week engagement from Sept. 10 – Oct. 20, 2019.
