Someone else is talking about theater? Really?

January 9, 2012

Far be it from me to suggest that there might be sources of theater news other than OnstageBackstage, or radio outlets other than WBEZ, but I see that last Friday an outfit called Chicago Theatre Off Book presented an end-of-the-year top-ten special hosted by Katy Walsh of The Fourth Walsh and featuring Kris Vire of TimeOut Chicago and Bob Bullen of Chicago Theatre Addict and Chicago Like A Local. Chicago Theatre Off Book is a weekly program of "reviews, interviews and one-minute audio plays . . . showcas[ing] the local talents driving Chicago's dynamic theatre force." It's an ongoing project of CHIRP, the Chicago Independent Radio Project, and will confer Honor Awards 2011 at a party in February. If you'd like to participate in voting on the awards, go here.
