Special Ticket Offer to Richard III Featuring Michael Patrick Thornton and RIC’s Robotic Exoskeleton
Since its stage debut on March 10th, the first-ever use of ReWalk, a robotic exoskeleton worn by RIC patient and Foundation Board member Michael Patrick Thornton, has garnered praise from several theater critics.
According to Chicago Tribune, “(the) RIC has put out a news release noting that this is the first time the ReWalk exoskeleton has been used in a live theatrical production, and it makes quite an entrance. But its artistic use is very profound and not a gimmick at all.”
RIC is offering an employee discount for the play, running through May 1st, 2016. Below are the details:
