Department of Cultural Affairs Theater Workshops/Events for November

November 07, 2008 — November 24, 2008

Studio Theater
$20; $15 for students and seniors
Journey through the psyche of Captain Melisande Blue in Noel William's award winning Pochinko clown and Bouffon style show. Packed and ready to go, Mel and her baggage find themselves at a train station exiled for "loving a little too much." Her divine ride features a feisty turnstile, dinner dates with luggage, and a two and a half foot mini version of "Gone with the Wind." A Fringe Festival favorite throughout the county, this will be the first time the full show has been seen in Chicago.
