Fillet of Solo

comment

Live Bait Theater's showcase of one-person shows features new work by a slew of familiar fringe faces, among them Jim Carrane, Stephanie Shaw, Mark Gagne, Quincy Wong, and David Kodeski. The event allows Live Bait the opportunity to launch its second performance space, the Bucket, designed specifically for solo work; shows also take place on the theater's main stage.

The fifth annual Fillet of Solo Festival runs August 3 through 25 at Live Bait Theater, 3914 N. Clark. Tickets are $10 per show; a festival pass costs $30. Call 773-871-1212 for reservations; consult www.livebaittheater.org for more information.
