Daily Rehearsal: 'Vic and Paul' stars have a great holiday tradition
1. Adventure Stage Chicago has gotten a $120,000 Continuing Innovation Stage II grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. This is the second that they've gotten from Doris Duke; in February, they got a $39,000 EmcARTS Innovation Lab Grant. With that money, the "philanthropy dollars were used to help engage fellow West Town neighborhood residents in a theater-making process centered on storytelling", which created content for their piece Neighborhood Perspectives. ASC will use this new money to continue simliar work, and have hired one of their ensemble members, Allison Latta Lashford, to be Associate Artistic Director while the grant is in play.
3. Elizabeth Rex is not mean to be "a documentary", says castmember Diane D'Aquila. More details on the complex history behind the production, and the connection to Shakespeare, in Scott C. Morgan's profile.
