Announcing the first IBJ A&E Road Trip…

Sunday in the Park with George… and Lou

Chicago Shakespeare's Courtyard Theatre will become a life-size masterpiece for Stephen Sondheim's landmark musical "Sunday in the Park with George," inspired by Georges Seurat's most famous work.

And I hope you can join me in experiencing it as part of the first IBJ A&E Road Trip.

Not only will we see the show—which is rarely staged because of its technical and talent requirements—but we'll also get a backstage tour of Chicago Shakespeare, winner of the 2008 Tony Award win for Best Regional Theatre in the country.

Before the show, we'll see the painting that inspired the musical: A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte–1884 at the Art Institute of Chicago. You'll also have free time to enjoy the museum and have lunch on your own.

And that's not all: There will be prize giveaways, trivia quizzes and more on the ride as well as a box supper served en route home—all in the company of fellow IBJ A&E readers. This day trip has been developed by IBJ in conjunction with Interlude Tours, an established tour company that offers escorted vacations from day trips and short getaways to extended tours worldwide www.InterludeTours.com.

  1. John, unfortunately CTRWD wants to put the tank(s) right next to a nature preserve and at the southern entrance to Carmel off of Keystone. Not exactly the kind of message you want to send to residents and visitors (come see our tanks as you enter our city and we build stuff in nature preserves...

  2. 85 feet for an ambitious project? I could shoot ej*culate farther than that.

  3. I tried, can't take it anymore. Untill Katz is replaced I can't listen anymore.

  4. Perhaps, but they've had a very active program to reduce rainwater/sump pump inflows for a number of years. But you are correct that controlling these peak flows will require spending more money - surge tanks, lines or removing storm water inflow at the source.

  5. All sewage goes to the Carmel treatment plant on the White River at 96th St. Rainfall should not affect sewage flows, but somehow it does - and the increased rate is more than the plant can handle a few times each year. One big source is typically homeowners who have their sump pumps connect into the sanitary sewer line rather than to the storm sewer line or yard. So we (Carmel and Clay Twp) need someway to hold the excess flow for a few days until the plant can process this material. Carmel wants the surge tank located at the treatment plant but than means an expensive underground line has to be installed through residential areas while CTRWD wants the surge tank located further 'upstream' from the treatment plant which costs less. Either solution works from an environmental control perspective. The less expensive solution means some people would likely have an unsightly tank near them. Carmel wants the more expensive solution - surprise!
