shameless promotion for this awesome new show my friend is in:
Anyone who has spent some amount of time riding Chicago’s trains and buses has collected stories from their travels. The EL, after all, is a public square - a place where Chicagoans from all backgrounds come together. Using the words of actual Chicagoans’ transit adventures over the course of a dramatized train ride, the Waltzing Mechanics seek to reflect how we move as a community through this dynamic city.

Also, every night a randomly selected member of the audience is invited to tell their own El Story. Enjoy!
