It’s another round of Chicago Theatre Off Book! This week, we review local theatre offerings that are kicking it up, blasting it off, and twanging it down.
Later, we’ll chat with Sideshow Theatre and The Lyric Opera of Chicago about the excitement around their 2011/2012 Season. And of course, we’re featuring two local playwrights in our one-minute audio play segment, Got A Minute? Have a listen and let us know what you think!
Shot word of the show: passion.
