Chicago Theatre Off Book is the new voice of community collaboration on CHIRP. Every week, Off Book features Chicago leaders in performing arts entertainment. From small storefronts to the big warhorses, Off Book focuses on what’s happening on the Chicagoland theatrical landscape. With reviews, interviews and one-minute audio-plays, Off Book showcases the local talents driving Chicago’s dynamic theatre force. Hosted by Actor Joshua J. Volkers and Reviewer Katy Walsh from The Fourth Walsh, Off Book is where Chicago meets to discuss artistic innovation.

Today, Chicago Theatre Off Book is joined by our friends and fellow theatre critics; Dan Jakes, Oliver Sava and Anderson Lawfer, to predict the 2013 Non-Equity Joseph Jefferson Awards. The Jeff Awards will be announced on Monday, June 3rd at the Park West ceremony extravaganza.
