Singletrack: Underscore Theatre

The purpose of an opening number is to pique the audience's interest, introduce characters & present themes, both musical and dramatic.

Micki LeSueur: 
On Reading Series

The only way I was going to participate in a live reading series was if I bum-rushed the stage. Or started my own.

South Logan Arts Coalition has recharged Logan Square. What used to be stretches of empty, boarded-up windows have been revitalized as tenanted, active studios.

One of the greatest things about country music is that part of the songwriting goal is to tell an emotionally relatable story about love or relationships.

Right Now
With recent funding awarded by The Joyce Foundation, CAR has begun an embedding initiative within different arts organizations around the city. This project aims to increase audience diversity by expanding the CAR website to be a primary educational, outreach and connecting tool.

Current placements include the American Rhythm Center, a consortium of dance companies in the Loop, and Washington Park Arts Incubator: artist studios, arts education, community projects & exhibits on the South Side.

For questions or to learn more, please contact CAR.
