Unique Hits


as of March 2nd, 2010 


As of yesterday afternoon, this blog has registered an amazing quarter-million unique hits.  And as we’re now averaging over 1,000 unique hits a day, we’re on track to attain a half-million hits by the end of September!

I’d like to thank my amazingly talented writers, past and present, for all of their consistently insightful work:

Paige Listerud, Catey Sullivan, Leah A. Zeldes, Barry Eitel, Oliver Sava, Katy Walsh, K.D. Hopkins, Keith Ecker, Ian Epstein, Aggie Hewitt, Richard Millward, Timothy McGuire Jackie Ingram and Venus Zarris.  

And I’d like to thank all of our passionate readers.  When starting this site, my goal was to 1. cover every multiple-performance show in Chicago, and 2. in turn, entice more people into experiencing the wonderful world of Chicago theatre.  I think we’re fairly close to accomplishing this goal – so thank you.  By the way, there’s much more to come, including more original video content, so please come back.  Often. 🙂

FYI: to make sure you don’t miss a thing, I suggest subscribing to this site.  This means that all of our posts, complete with pictures and links, are sent directly to your inbox. 

in your service,
