Destroying Remains



To the editors:

Talk about "a sign of the times"! Regarding the recent article in the Culture Club [August 27], so-called "real estate developer" Chuck Malk wants to blithely eliminate one of the finest theaters in Chicago--the Remains--so that he can build a parking lot! Malk has money flowing out of his pockets but obviously has no scruples whatsoever. He calls himself a developer, but I call him a destroyer. The Remains Theatre deserves better than that. All of us artists do, but especially that troupe which has paid its dues and has given us years of pleasure. Sadly, the likes of Malk have cash, not class, so we are subject to their mercy. Chuck Malk ought to hide his face in shame, but realistically I know he'll just laugh.
