Real-Life heroism (with a side of puppets)

August 11, 2011

When Corrie Besse of Redmoon Theater went to the police station to report the theft of her iPhone on the subway, she did more than warm a bench and consume paper: she helped the police find the suspect in the June murder of Sally Katoma King, a community activist shoved down a set of stairs on the Red Line platform by someone in the midst of another iPhone snatching.

The Tribune has her story on the front page (and how often does a theater person get attention on that sacred domain?). Redmoon, always as committed to community service and involvement as to theater, scores again. Brava!
