College Watch – "Intimate Apparel" at Loyola

I recently received an e-mail from a publicist at Loyola University, asking me to post info on their upcoming show, Intimate Apparel, by Lynn Nottage.  As I have yet to cover theater within Chicago area universities, I was a bit undecided whether or not to make the postings.  But then it occurred to me that, for many, the love of live theater actually occurs in upper education, so why not?  In fact, I’d love to have a person on my blogging team that covers the college theater-scene; probably not reviews as much as just wassup.  So if anyone out there (or someone you know) might be intrigued by this, let me know… 

So here you go:
