Last September Redmoon Theater hosted an outdoor Spectacle: Last of my Species: The Fearless Songs of Laarna Cortaan and it was absolutely amazing.
Held on the lakefront in Lincoln Park near Belmont Harbor it was truly a spectacle and it's not to be missed. This year to carry on the tradition Redmoon has just announced that there will be two more outdoor events:
Festival 2010 J.O.E. A Joyous Outdoor Event, September 2nd - 6th again at Belmont Harbor. In the spirit of Labor Day's celebration of workers and their families, Redmoon launches its FIRST FESTIVAL of quality family entertainment, public art installation, quirky small scale performances and live music acts all culminating in a REDMOON SPECTACLE PRODUCTION. During the daytime you can: Journey through the world-renowned LUMINARIUM PRESENTED BY THE UK'S ARCHITECTS OF AIR; Enjoy children's entertainment including world-class storytelling and music; experience UNIQUE SIDE SHOW ACTS such as Ricky (the world famous lounge performer); encounter roaming GUERILLA PERFORMERS AND BUSKERS; relax in the 'living room' and picnic in the lakeshore location. Stay for the evening and add the following to the above: revel in a live musical act each night presented by our festival partners THE METRO; and in thrilling 2 Dimensions - LAST OF MY SPECIES II: The Perilous Songs of Bibi Merhdad (an exciting sequel to last years massive hit)!
