Thank you for checking out my blog. My name is Jeff, and I have been an avid theater-goer since seeing Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Marriott Lincolnshire when I was about 7 or 8 years old.
My experience with theater is almost completely as an audience member. I performed in two musicals in high school and I performed in the show choir for two years — gratefully, any records of said performances were reproduced on VHS and are now obsolete and forgotten.
I’m creating this blog to celebrate theater in Chicago, which I believe in many respects surpasses New York. My write-ups of the plays and musicals that I see should not be read as reviews. I will be thrilled by some shows and will be less-than-enthusiastic about others (that happens when a person sees 60+ shows a year). I hope that my write-ups (positive or negative) inform you about what is currently playing in Chicago and inspire you to see a show and form your own opinions.
