A poster showing a woman with six arms, holding a phone, skull, and flower. It says, "Everybody."
Thirteen glowing skulls sit in a pyramid formation and stare out into the distance.

"Putting the story together like glue, God and Usher (Maggie Smith) drove the ideas of love and selflessness home. Hilarious in her acting, she opened and closed the show with spunk and an overall immersing experience. Her strut up the stair step platform — elevated above everyone — with sunglasses was unforgettable and hysterical."

-Kara Morelock, Loyola Phoenix

In the summer of 2022 Loyola's production of EVERYBODY was chosen to be included in Eta Creative Arts' Collegiate Showcase along with two other productions from Chicago schools. The production was a part of the theater's 51st Season, and ran from May 19th to June 12th.
