CHICAGO -- To be revived on May 7, Bleacher Bums is the latest reclamation effort by Chicago Theatres on the Air.Presented at Skokie's North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, the one-night-only revival features two now-famous original cast members -- Dennis Franz and Joe Mantegna -- from the 1977 hit comedy. They'll return to Chicago to record the Organic Theatre's tribute to the rabid left-field fans of Wrigley Field.
Film director Stuart Gordon again stages the vintage Chicago comedy, which is slated for later broadcast on WFMT. For information call (847) 864-7400.
