CHICAGO, IL — As Victory Gardens' long renovation of the historic Biograph Theater in Chicago begins to draw to a close, they celebrate this weekend with an Open House. Although much work remains to be done – the exterior of the building alone presently lacks second-floor windows, a marquee, a box office, and brickwork around the entry – the building is well on its way to taking shape for next month’s premiere of “Denmark”, Victory Gardens' world premiere in the new 299-seat Zacek-McVay auditorium.
The open house will be held Saturday, September 9 and Sunday, September 10 from noon-5pm.
