Smoking ban for ‘Jersey Boys’

Chris Jones at the Chicago Tribune reports that the Chicago production of “Jersey Boys” (an outstanding show, by the way–and that’s me talking, not Jones) has gone smoke free.

He’s not talking about the theater. He’s talking about the show itself. Apparently the laws in Chicago don’t allow for artistic use of cigs. And when someone in the audience complained, well, the law is the law.

Does this sound as out of hand to you as it does to me?
