Victory Gardens Theater announces resident companies
Victory Gardens Theater has revealed its new roommates. Bailiwick Chicago, Rasaka Theatre Company, Sideshow Theatre Company and Teatro Vista will mount their 2013–14 seasons at the Biograph as the inaugural class of VG's previously announced Resident Theater Program.
Each of the four theaters will serve a multi-year residency. "Our ultimate objective is to position Victory Gardens, with its location in the heart of Lincoln Park at the crossroads of a major transportation hub, as a premier cultural performing arts center," Victory Gardens artistic director Chay Yew said in announcing the lineup. "By gathering these diverse theaters under one roof, Chicago residents can more fully engage with all of the city's communities throughout the year." The new resident theaters are expected to announce their seasons individually in the coming weeks.
