CHICAGO--Tonight the Chicago theatre community laughs at itself—for a good cause. Held at The Second City mainstage, "The ReVoltaire Benefit" is an evening of satire that brings together performers and troupes, including The Second City, The Free Associates, The Factory Theatre, and The Annoyance Theatre, to perform scenes and songs that spoof and satirize the Chicago theatre scene. The event will also feature guest performances by toga clad members of Chicago's fourth estate, including Jack Helbig (Daily Herald, Reader), Chris Jones (Chicago Tribune, New City), Lucia Mauro (Chicago Sun-Times, New City), Jonathan Abarbanel (Chicago Sun-Times, WBEZ Public Radio) and myself. The event and its assorted raffles will help to raise money to relocate the Voltaire Theatre, a home to hundreds of actors, writers and directors in Chicago, to a new space on Chicago's North Side. For information call (312) 664-4031.
