We ate at Atwood and took advantage of their valet parking. It is a consistently excellent restaurant and the parking rocks.

Their interpretation of "Front Balcony and Mid Balcony" are very different than what you would anticipate if yoiu are a native speaker of the English language instead of the weird theatre/marketing speak. I was always seated in the back five rows...continued

To Master the Art**

*Commissioned by TimeLine Theatre in 2008, To Master the Art received its world premiere at TimeLine in 2010, receiving more than 20 rave reviews and five Jeff Award nominations, including New Work and Production. The play recalls the adventure and romance of Julia and Paul Child’s journey of discovery to Paris during the 1950s. From the bistro where Julia fell in love with food, to the kitchen table where she recreated everything learned during cooking class, to a room where Paul was grilled by U.S. agents about alleged Communist contact, this is the story of a larger-than-life culinary icon and her remarkable husband as they struggle to find themselves as Americans abroad. The Chicago Tribune raved that _To Master the Art _was one of the “toughest tickets in Chicago” and called the show “an excellent, intimate, foodie-friendly staging, resonant with atmosphere”. And Talkin’ Broadway called it “a total delight-funny, touching, charming and as enjoyable as an exquisite meal enjoyed together with good company.”

Evita

*Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award-winning musical returns at last! Eva Perón used her beauty and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world – while her greed, outsized ambition and fragile health made her one of the most tragic. Evita tells Eva’s passionate and unforgettable true story, and features some of theater’s most beautiful songs, including “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall” and “High Flying, Adored.” Don’t miss the stunning new production of Evita, directed by Michael Grandage and choreographed by Rob Ashford, that Channel 4 New York calls “the hottest ticket in town!” _
