Broadway in Chicago, or the Other Way Around?
There has been a lot of hoopla lately about road houses and transfers of shows both to and from Broadway, and no single city has been busier in this regard than Chicago. With a number of productions having done their out of town try outs there (most recently The Addams Family), many productions transferring from resident Chicago productions to Broadway (including Desire Under the Elms with Brian Dennehy, and Tracey Letts' August: Osage County and Superior Donuts) and even a production of Wicked that moved there to stay, Chicago has been a hot-spot for high quality theater. But what do THEY think about it? Here's a link to a great article on Variety.com, written by Chris Jones.
