Update on Noble Fool:
A victim of high ticket prices, uncertain artistic content and crippling rent, the Noble Fool Theater Company, has abruptly closed its 2-year-old Loop theater at 16 W. Randolph St., canceling all shows and leaving employees wondering if and when they will see their last paychecks.
Meanwhile, Stan Soroka, senior vice president of Oak Brook Hotels, said Friday that the Pheasant Run resort has "covered the paychecks" of all Noble Fool's St. Charles-based satellite employees, and still plans to present a "full season of Noble Fool productions," even if the downtown premieres are no longer going to happen
