I live in Naperville IL, a Chicago suburb. Theater and the arts is a passion.  I have been to almost every theater venue in Chicago and the regional theaters including Drury Lane Oakbrook, Marriott Lincolnshire and the Paramount in Aurora. On a personal note I have been involved with The Summer Place community theater in Naperville IL for more than 50 years as a performer. I have also performed at other venues in the area. This opportunity to let a larger audience know about the state of theater and the amazing talent in the Chicago area is an honor.
