After over six years of blood, sweat and tears we are
ceasing productions at our wonderful home, 442 E
"Whackjob" will be the last show at The Abreact.
Not to worry, our next season will be housed at The
Zeitgeist Art Gallery and Performance Space at 2661
Michigan Ave. thanks to Troy Richard. We are in
negotiations to take over producing at this space for
possibly the next 3-5 years.
We have had many wonderful times at the Boydell
building and want to keep it as our literal home even
if it means we need to find a new home for our
productions. Among other reasons , we have simply out
grown the space in both ideas and our ability to
accommodate larger audiences. And as you may have
surmised from this past season we've had some big
ideas, now we will have a work space that will allow
us to grow.
The current address will still be our operations
office and storage. Going forward we will be hosting
more fund raising events, theatre work shops, art
exhibits, etc. etc.
So in essence we're merely changing gears and many
ways making the space even more accessable to the
theatre and art community.
Thank you very much for your continued support!

Sounds like good news. Hurrah for them.
News gets around. This is the second notice I've seen today of this development.

I love that venue, I've only missed one show in the six years of its existence.
I can only hope them the best in the new space, but I'll miss grabbing a beer from the cooler or the fridge and chatting with someone who has never been there before. As well as grabbing chairs to seat people.
I love Abreact as it has been, but it should grow.
