Calo Theatre to get $1 million rehab:
The historic Calo Theatre in Andersonville will be renovated and expanded into a three-theater arts center available for use by a wide variety of local theater groups.
According to Brian Posen, a local improv director and teacher and the founder of the Chicago Sketchfest, the theater at 5404 N. Clark St. will undergo a roughly $1 million rehab. It will reopen in spring 2006 and be run by Lukaba Productions, a non-profit controlled by Posen.
The theater complex will operate primarily as a rental house, modeled on the Theatre Building, a longtime venue in Lakeview.
I see us having prime-time shows, late nights and children's theater, Posen said
(from The Chicago Tribune).
