Movies ! Movies ! Movies !

One of the best classical National theatres is The American Theatre Company - which can stand up to anything which New York City can produce on equal ground and with less money too !
For Les Avant Garde is the Neofuturists Theatre and here there is some bending of the rules too ! Their competitor of Les Avant Garde market  is The Eclipse Theatre Company - Chicago.  For real grit and solide performances with a hint of International allure, then you have to go to the Steppenwolf Theatre Company - they have one rule " Entertain " and a somethat germatic presence too ! According the Rachel, " the audience literally surrendered in enjoyment."

Theatre Building Chicago’s 2007-2008 season preview -
TBC to produce no less than 20 new musicals in progress, 3 new musicals for young audiences (PreK-2), in addition to over fifteen shows presented by ten independent theatre companies

Theatre Building Chicago announces its continuing 30th season as an incubator to develop original musical works and to support both acclaimed and emerging theatre companies and artists. Each year, Theatre Building Chicago provides space and services to more than a thousand artists in 35 presentations and 315 special events. Since opening its doors on March 15, 1977, Theatre Building Chicago – Chicago’s very own theatrical crossroads- has hosted more than 800 plays, 500 theatre companies, 1,078,000 audience members, 9000 events with 25,000 performances, and 30,000 actors, designers, directors and other theatre artists.

The musical development program at Theatre Building Chicago is a multi-tiered approach to nurturing new works of musical theatre. The first tier is the musical theatre writers workshop, an on-going educational support group for composers, lyricists and bookwriters. Our musical theatre writers workshop meets regularly to collaborate under the guidance of Artistic Director, John Sparks and Associate Artistic Director Allan Chambers. Members develop individual projects with select new works presented in the Monday Night Musicals series, as well as studio presentations, One Acts Projects, Mini-Musicals and Stages, an annual festival of new musicals in progress. Unique in the country, Theatre Building Chicago’s musical theatre writers workshop and presentation program produces more than 20 new musicals in progress each season. Over the last two decades we have premiered 251 new musicals in Chicago and seen several of them soar into other productions on Broadway and across the country.  The workshop accepts inquiries through September; for more information contact Associate Artistic Director Allan Chambers: 773.929.7367 x229

2007: Sep 22-23; Oct 20-21; Nov 17-18
2008: Jan 19-20; Feb 23-24; Mar 29-30; Apr 26-27; May 17-18; Jun 21-22

Workshop Open House: 1PM - May 17, 2008
Mini-Musicals; 2PM - May 4, 7PM – May 5 & 6, 2008

Promising works from the workshop and other developmental programs around the world are performed in the Monday Night Musicals concert reading series that forms the second tier of the program. A public presentation program of one-act musicals, musicals for young audiences and studio presentations of longer works comprises the upper tier of the program. Perhaps the most visible part of the musical program, Stages is Theatre Building Chicago’s method of offering presentation opportunities to musical theatre writers across the country. Theatre Building Chicago welcomes media attention focusing on the developmental process of new musicals; however,  works in progress are not appropriate for critical review.
