Other Fine Events

There’s a lot going on in Chicago that is great. Our show exists to introduce you to excellent people and things, and we would like to do that here, too.

Here is a list of personal performance events (live lit/solo performance/storytelling/spoken word) that happen regularly in Chicago. Please use your googling powers to confirm times and locations before attending, as sometimes these things change.
