Is that I get to work with producers, directors, and the people who create the shows that come to Chicago. Courageous human beings that bring together creative people like paints and combine them on a canvas known to us as a stage. They are people who know that theatre makes a difference in our world. They are young, old, male, female, part-genius, part-wizard, with a definite touch of insanity mixed in! But these are the people that make a difference in my life and the life of Broadway In Chicago. These are the people that we work for – that we dance with – producers and creative directors are the ones we hope will love us and know we care about their shows as much as they do. We want them to bring their shows to our city, we want them to love our city, and to bring us the biggest, the best, the first, the never seen before – we count on them, they are our heroes.
Here I am with Jeannot Painchaud, co-founder and director of Cirque Éloize iD following a recent meeting to discuss how we are going to introduce Chicago to something they have never seen before.
Check this video out!

We wanted to take you into the inner circle of what we have been working on at Broadway In Chicago.

Coming up with fun things to do around the show.
What do you think about a Pirate Cruise? You load at Michigan & Wacker and are treated to a fun Pirate Cruise with your own Pirate garb! The boat would take you to Chicago Ave. and the river, right at the location of the PETER PAN tent, then bring you back after the show. Would you go?

What a great weekend we had! This warmer weather definitely makes us want to get outside. Since we can’t always get outside with our schedules, we put together a great street team for the summer. If you are looking for work and like to be outdoors telling people about theatre, click here. North Michigan Avenue is always a target for us and it’s great to have the Broadway Playhouse there now. Did you know you can buy tickets for all the Broadway In Chicago shows at the kiosk in Water Tower Place – right in the entrance to the mall?
LOVE LOSS AND WHAT I WORE
What could be better than planning a VIP event for group leaders, media and city officials? We are getting ready to introduce the show to Chicago, and we get to do it in one of the most prestigious shopping centers in the country, Water Tower Place. The theater is right there and it’s a mecca of shopping on “One of the Great Avenues of the World.” I don’t know if there could be a better location!
