It's another round of Chicago Theatre Off Book on CHIRP! This week, we review local theatre offerings about songs becoming story, lesbians becoming parents, and coalminers becoming artists. Later, we'll chat with Remy Bumppo and Steppenwolf about the excitement around their 2011/2012 Season. And of course, we're featuring two local playwrights in our one-minute audio play segment, Got A Minute? Have a listen and let us know what you think. Shot word of the show: *Billy Club.*
