I got an email in today from my college kid amigo, Beth, to let me know that the committee passed the proposal and so, yes, the University of Chicago Theater Group will be staging the world premiere of NOWHERE TOWN, my gay Orpheus musical. I knew from the emails we've been exchanging that Beth had really gotten a great team of people on board with this, people doing costume and lighting designs, and most crucially a musical director to translate the mp3s and GarageBand projects into something actually performable; but you don't count yer chickens before they're hatched, so I'm humungously stoked to know that they've been given the go-ahead.
Next stop: Broadway!
If I were only rich right now, I'd totally be booking a ticket to Chicago to be in the audience, you know.
