It’s officially Festival Season, so look for us later in the season at Lakeview East’s Festival of the Arts, Sat-Sun Sep 8-9 (Broadway, Belmont to School) and Lakeview’s Taco Fest Sat-Sun Sep 15-16 (Southport, Addison to Roscoe).

We are beyond excited to see the amazing work of Theater Wit, Shattered Globe Theatre, TimeLine Theatre Co and Annoyance Theatre & Bar representing the 20+ BTD theaters and the amazing wealth and breadth of theater to be found in the BTD. All hail Lakeview East and Lakeview Chambers of Commerce, who made this wonderful promotion possible!
