It's been a couple of days, so please excuse the lateness of this blog post. Please do not think, however, that this diminishes the awesomeness and excitement...

Also, coming up shortly at the Dream Theatre itself, as well as other venues in the Pilsen neighborhood:
CHICAGO FRINGE FESTIVAL!
Put together in practically no time at all (considering how much work went into this thing) by the ever-talented Sarah Mikayla Brown and her incredible staff, this festival marks Chicago's entrance into the emerging history of fringe festivals across the continent. And it comes with a bang – over 200 performances and events strewn across five days with artists coming in from all corners of the country, some pretentious and some insightful, but all interesting. And if that's not enough, there will be Old Style beer to keep you sufficiently engaged.
Get. Your. Tickets. Now.
See you down in Pilsen!
