Last fall, when Bailiwick Repertory landed a Joseph Jefferson best production award for The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the occasion was bittersweet: artistic director David Zak noted that the award was a "bookend," marking the conclusion of the company's years in its Belmont Avenue home. But the financial difficulty that turned Bailiwick homeless hasn't wiped it out. This week Bailiwick announced its first post-Belmont production, Bombs Away--a new musical by Sally Deering and Larry Bortnicker, the team behind Bailiwick's hit Alfred Kinsey spoof Dr. Sex. A collection of fictional bits supposedly cut from real musicals, Bombs Away runs 6/4-7/11, Thu-Sat 7:00 PM, Mary's Attic, 5400 N. Clark. After that, Bailiwick's planning a new play and musical to run in repertory at the Center on Halsted, as part of Pride 2009.
