Hello dear ones -

TUTA Theatre Chicago is hosting our annual benefit and I'm hoping some of you might be interested in attending. If you follow my blog then you know a bit about TUTA; about the uniqueness and integrity of our work. This really is a special group of folks who are manifesting truly special work and as you can imagine - we are struggling in this economic climate.

If you believe in art and its ability to challenge the human mind, to inspire and to bring change into the world, please support TUTA as you are able. This benefit will be a blast (and I actually mean that - we know how to throw a good party) and/or you can catch our upcoming production of Uncle Vanya by A.P. Chekhov. It's a stunning show that was heralded as the best local production in the last year by the Chicago Reader and was so popular in its first run that we have remounted it.

This ain't your momma's Chekhov and you won't see this anywhere else in town. In fact, you may want to buy your tickets now since last year's run sold out so quickly and 2009 shows are already filling.

If you can't make it to either event but would like to support us (after all, we're very lovable as well as skilled), you can go to our website and make a donation. No donation is too small, every dollar and bit of love can make a difference and because we are a 501(c)(3) your contributions are tax deductible.

And to those of you who are able to make the benefit, I'll be there, whippin up tasty finger foods in a fabulous dress and dancin' shoes. Care to cut a rug with me?


TUTA Theatre Chicago is proud to announce our annual fundraising event, Worldwide TUTA: 2009 Gala, benefiting the 2009–10 season (Young & Restless Brecht) and the continuation of our training center.

Step into an international festival full of desserts, wine, music, prizes, and much more.
