Time Out Chicago: The TOC Blog Five things to do today - Oct 7:

Monologuist Daisey, who’s performing this weekend at the MCA Theater (his first Chicago appearance), caused a stir earlier this year around the country—and particularly in the theatrical corners of the blogosphere—with his piece about perceived failures of the regional theater movement, namely that they’ve let big donors and big buildings become more important than art. In this roundtable, artistic directors of Chicago theaters from Steppenwolf to Curious Theatre Branch discuss Daisey’s ideas and the need to balance the institutional and the artistic. 6pm.
