Daily Rehearsal: Northlight to stage new Bruce Graham play
1. Babe With Blades will be at the side project with their show Trash, but beforehand, they'll also have "an Irish wake-inspired reception at The Poitin Stil."Two sisters. One letter. TRASH. Fresh from a funeral, sisters Diane and Becky dig through a landfill - and family grievances - in search of the letter from their dying mother that Becky threw away unopened."
2. Remember how Brian Dickie is leaving COT? His last season opens with Shostakovich’s Moscow, Cheryomushki on April 14, 20, 22 and 25 at the Harris Theater in Millenium Park. Remember, tickets are available through 100@25.
3. Dances Made to Order, "a curated, monthly film series available exclusively online" will have participating dancers in Chicago through Columbia College. You can vote on ideas that will push the direction of the pieces May 2 through 10, with the premiere of the movie on the 30th.
5. And here, a very flattering piece in the Tribune on The Paper Machete and other live variety shows we like in Chicago (The Interview Show, Funny Ha-Ha).
