Chicago Theater’s Amateur Night

“For the first time ever, Victory Gardens Theater’s Chicago Stories benefit is sold out. A swank annual gala attended by some of the city’s biggest power brokers, it has become immensely popular among philanthropists and drama mavens alike.” The event features semi-autobiographical one-act plays by such local celebrities as basketball coach Phil Jackson and food writer/”Queer Eye” star Ted Allen. The results can range from embarrassing to hilarious, and the performances are now a bona fide hot ticket.
