Logan Center Launch at the University of Chicago, this Friday through Sunday, October 12-14, 915 East 60th Street, multiple events, mostly FREE!
This week's headline event is the opening of the David and Reva Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago, which our own architecture blogger Lee Bey wrote about earlier this week. After years of creating great theater, improv, dance, painting, sculpture and multimedia (not to mention playwriting, prose and poetry) in basements and converted lounges, artists at the University of Chicago can move into their fancy new building and explode with creativity. Among the 50-plus events: Sean Graney's 12-hour Greek tragedy performance All Our Tragic; a kick-off concert of Mexican roots music including David Hidalgo of Los Lobos; and student performances of Proof, the Tony-Award-winning play by alumnus David Auburn. Still bored?
