Daily Rehearsal: Occupy Broadway?
2. Remy Bumppo has a new "Between the Lines" conversation coming up this weekend from Long Wharf Theatre on Mourning Becomes Electra, not to be confused with the hit children's show from way back when, Between the Lions. Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein talks about Eugene O'Neill and plans to show how O'Neill "packed all the power of Mourning Becomes Electra in to just half the time."
3. Taxes, art and non-profits, Kelly Kleiman's favorite topics. According to the Reader, who got it via the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy, "Fifty-five percent of foundation arts grants go to the less than 2 percent of arts organizations with annual budgets of more than $5 million." And, perhaps unsurprising to you, the people who experience the work of these insitutions are typically white and wealthy.
5. A week from Saturday we've got TimeLine Theatre's “Meet the Artists” reception in relation to their show The Pitman Painters. They have artwork by six Chicago-area union members displayed at the theatre and Art de Triumph/Artful Framers Studio, and the reception will be after the 4 pm show at the latter location.
