It was a year of scandal and rejuvenation, loss and celebration,
recessionary cuts, and, incredibly enough, new theaters built in the
teeth of the recession. Here's a brief look back at some of the biggest
stories of 2010 in Chicago theater.
August: The Tribune announces Sam Shepard
as the winner of its annual literary prize. The resurgent Drury Lane
Theatre in Oakbrook Terrace dominates the annual nominations for the
Joseph Jefferson Awards. The Joffrey Ballet makes a deal with Groupon and sells 2,338 cut-rate subscriptions in one day. Steppenwolf takes "August: Osage County" to Cate Blanchett's Sydney Theatre Company in Australia.
