Chicago Theatre Off Book chats with Timeline, Stage 773 and reviews Lookingglass, The Lyric and Strawdog plus "Got A Minute?"

 It’s another round of Chicago Theatre Off Book on Chicago Independent Radio Project (CHIRP). This week, we review local theatre offerings that are burning up the stage with fire, heat, and smolder. Later, we’ll chat with Timeline and Stage 773 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.
