It's gorgeous, intimate and has a beautifully storied history. Those lines, those lights, those curves--it's a pinup of a theatre. When you're there, you're not only transported by the excitement of the moment but also in imagining all who have passed thru before and those who are on the way. I bet any artist who really wants to be seen felt and heard when asked what venue in Chicago they'd prefer to play would say "The Auditorium, of course!" And if it's their manager asking and the person being asked is feeling particularly artistic he or she might add, "What am I paying you for? Not to ask me stupid questions like that!"
Well, that's what I'd say anyway. Then we could have a good laugh. Then, I'd pull myself up short and say, "You think I'm kidding? Wrong--again. You'd better get it together. Or else."
