The new Hotel Lincoln is a window to the most dynamic part of Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Park.
Like the neighborhood, the hotel is historic yet fresh, fun though eccentric and active but relaxed. It's where the energy of urban life meets 1,200 green acres and Lake Michigan.

A tense courtroom drama inspired by the Personnel Security Board’s secret hearing of “the father of the atomic bomb.” The material provides valuable insights into the development of the atomic bomb and the postwar debate among scientists about the hydrogen bomb, the conflict between the foreign policy and military establishments over national defense and the controversy about the proper standards to apply in assessing an individual’s loyalty. The play reveals the fears and anxieties that plagued America during the Cold War era—and perhaps even today.
