Review for American Blues Theater, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A truly wonderful org that's on an amazing trajectory of growth!

With so many qualities to praise, I'll limit it to my 3 faves:

1) Throughout this group; Artists, Artistic leadership, Board, Staff, Technicians and Teachers, they're positive, hard working people with beautiful souls, dedicated to shared goals.

Those goals are:

2) Creation of truly excellent art which challenges, inspires and entertains a diverse audience in rich, profound ways.

3) Service to their community and audience, going well beyond the art they produce. They actually changes lives, for the better.

The upshot: They invaluably touch an increasing number of lives, consistently raising the quality of life and discourse in Chicago, as they grow.

I can't think of a better way to spend time, money and love.

Rating: 5 stars  

Well...I've been affiliated with the company for a couple more years now and they continue to grow artistically, and infrastructurally while they expand their practical impact on other important not-for-profits. It really is an arts org in which I feel that my efforts make a difference.

Review for American Blues Theater, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm an actor. Over the years I'd seen several excellent shows at American Blues Theater (ABT), which put them on my list of exceptional companies that I'd like to work with.

However, I fell in love when I worked with them.

In addition to their standards of artistic excellence, which I’d already known to be at the highest levels, and their deep commitment to one another as people, they have a unique commitment to the city and to being an active positive influence on the world at large.

On a personal level, I've consistently worked toward making my daily impact on the world a positive one, and I’ve sought ways of maximizing that impact. In the process, I've learned that this can best be done in a community.
Which is why ABT blows my mind, they’ve created an environment where one can pursue art with a group of folks who share core values, which I happen to old very dear.

I periodically continue to work with ABT, as an actor however, I consistently volunteer for them, because it fulfills my soul to work in an artistic environment that's outwardly focused; striving with conviction to improve the world, whether it's in the service to individuals, families communities or other not for profits (local and national).

This company is a good fit for people who care about art and the larger well-being of their community and the world.

If you're thinking about supporting American Blues Theater, I encourage you to go for it.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Build it's infrastucture and budget so that it can have a wider artistic and social impact.
