Off Book chats to Strawdog and Chicago Shakes and much more!

It's another round of Chicago Theatre Off Book on Chicago Independent Radio Project, CHIRP. This week, we review local theatre offerings looking for love, beauty and hand. Later, we'll chat with Strawdog Theatre and Chicago Shakespeare Theater 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.  This show was partially underwritten by The STEP Fund.
