The deed is done

I think I have a new home, barring any unforeseen circumstances, which, after everything else, I'm totally not barring. Thanks to everyone who offered some ideas or kind words in the meantime. As a result of much of this, I'm going to be taking a ten day caudal autotomy back home to good ol' George, Iowa in mid-July. I'm lucky to be from one of the 16 counties in the state that has not been declared a disaster area, so I'm going to kick back and enjoy my first Iowa summer since I moved to the Windy City three years ago. It's going to kick much ass.

This also means I will be out of the city for two whole weekends, which is a bitch to schedule theatregoing around. I simply won't have enough time to see everything I want to see, which I suppose is a good problem to have. I've already lost A Taste of Honey to the chopping block and there's a couple of others ready to go if moving conflicts become too bad. Boo. Hiss.

Tentatively for this week: Dead Man's Cell Phone at Steppenwolf on Wednesday, Strange Tree Group's The Mysterious Elephant and the Terrible Tragedy of the Unlikely Addington Twins* (*Who Kill Him) on Thursday, Trap Door's Beholder on Saturday, and Theo Ubique's Jacques Brel's Lonesome Losers of the Night on Sunday.

What's happening Friday? Willie Nelson. Willie muthafuckin' Nelson.
