Here’s the press release from Hobo Junction:
HOBO JUNCTION ANNOUNCES THEIR
2009/2010 SEASON, WHICH WILL BE
PERFORMED AT THE APOLLO THEATRE STUDIO
On June 12, 2009 Hobo Junction closed out their 2008/2009 season with a sold out run of BAD GUYS IN SUITS at Chicago’s landmark Apollo Theatre. Building upon that success Hobo Junction is planning to continue their association with the Apollo and scheduling their 2009/2010 to run in the amazing Apollo Theatre Studio.
Kicking off their season November 6, 2009, will be HORRIBLE, a new comedy by Josh Zagoren…the mastermind behind Hobo Junction and author of BAD GUYS IN SUITS. HORRIBLE, a romantically dark comedy for the holidays, is a story about love, death, cannibalism…and flowers. If you’re looking for an escape from sugarplum faeries you came to the right place.
Then in the Spring of 2010 they bring back their 2007 hit show THE REGULARS…an epic battle for honor, battle and tips. Using all they know, the waiters hold their defenses against the largest crowd a restaurant has ever seen. They try to stay true to each other and learn to love until a threat from within begins to tear them apart.
Hobo Junction’s 2009/2010 Season Will Run at the Apollo Theatre Studio
2540 North Lincoln Avenue * Chicago IL 60614
The Apollo has a valet-assisted parking lot at the north side of the building for $10.00 per car. Attendants will direct you to a parking spot, but they will not take your keys. The Apollo is also easily accessible by CTA trains and buses.
The Fullerton “L” stop (Red, Brown & Purple lines) is located only a few minutes away from the theater.
