If you're affiliated with a theater company (and you know who you are), please make sure that your company is completing the Chicago Theater Database/Performink season survey. Not only will the information from the survey be used to compile Performink's annual Season Preview issue, it'll also be the first major test of the CTDB.
Nick Keenan, Dan Granata and a number of volunteers and consultants have been putting in Herculean efforts in the creation of what will be a very useful tool for the entire theater community, and the more data that can be mined in this initial effort, the better the database will be in the long run.
Nearly every known theater company in town has received an email invitation to participate, but emails sometimes get lost, and this is Chicago, where there are new theater companies every day. If you belong to one, check with your company and make sure your info gets counted. The survey is here.
