Redmoon , the unique Chicago theater operation that specializes in grand-scale spectacles staged both outdoors and on standard stages, is on the move. It is leaving its longtime headquarters in the West Loop for a new 57,000-square-foot space at 2120 S. Jefferson in Pilsen, with backing from 25th Ward Alderman Danny Solis, the Department if Cultural Affairs and Special Events and the Mayor's Office, all of whom want to make Pilsen more of a vibrant cultural district.
Redmoon, founded in 1990 and co-directed by Frank Maugeri and Jim Lasko, will inaugurate its new space, which can accommodate 1000 people, on March 9 with its Spectacle Lunatique benefit. For information visit www.redmoon.org.
