Hi Folks – Our neighbor Jason has another show he wanted to let the neighbors know about. It looks like a great musical revue celebrating Chicago if you are interested in checking out some of the great artistic work coming out of Edgewater Glen lately.

Three Cat Productions is thrilled to showcase Chicago based composers with Chicago Is! A Hometown Musical Revue.   More than just Michigan avenue, Garrett’s Popcorn, and the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Is! tells the story of Chicago through the eyes of seven Chicagoans.   Each character explores their memories of the city they love.
