Time Out Chicago article about Gorilla Tango Theatre, the venue where you'll find me for two more Thursday evenings. Has a brief quote from our director/producer, who's also on the theatre's staff.

It's an interesting read if you're stagefolk, and an interesting concept that I'll certainly be keeping a close eye on. Dan's philosophy reminds me a bit of Steve Guyer of Shadowbox Cabaret in Columbus, but without the resident cult ensemble. (Disclaimer: I do not actually consider Shadowbox to be a cult in any serious sense of the term. But the reasons it's sometimes regarded as one are...a bigger topic than I meant to digress onto. So, um, no.)

In both cases, my gut reaction is probably the same as that of anyone who's spent a couple decades up to their eyebrows in small-time theatre: "Profit? Isn't that kind of...icky?" But objectively, I can't think of any reason it intrinsically should be. Certainly GT's extremely flexible model for making their space available is a very shiny lure. My immediate thought when I first heard about it was hey, that could actually work for the long-neglected (but I'm going to figure out how to write it, dammit!) Lizzie Project. Maybe it'll get me back to wrestling with the darn thing...

...I didn't get the reference in the entry title until the second time I saw it. *shameface* But it made me giggle when I did.

Bad fangirl!

Belated giggles are better than no giggles. As long as somebody got it! :-D
