Morse Theatre Reinvented and Ready to Open

Read all about it in the Chicago Tribune. (Hat tip: North Howard Neighbors Association.)

Irritatingly, I'm about to go out of town for a few days, so I won't be able to wander over there and check it out on Thursday, which bums me out. If you head on over there this weekend, please let me know about your experience!

I imagine my girlfriend and I will be checking it out next weekend.

It'll be interesting to see what the music vibe at this place becomes over time. I see some jazz, but a lot of blues, too. And a bit of classical. I have pretty broad musical tastes, but what I'm most hopeful for is more live jazz in the neighborhood. I'll get out to see it a lot more often if I don't have to head all the way down to the South Loop to visit the Jazz Showcase.

Al,
You're going to 'love' it. We caught the Taj Mahal Trio Saturday evening and the Morse Theatre is awesome in its aesthetics as well as its acoustics. What a show and what a venue!
