This past Monday, several trustees and I dropped by the Nasty, Brutish & Short Puppet Cabaret to hand over a wad of cold cash to February grantee Lacy Campell. We were blown away by the preview of her show, as well as the rest of the acts in what we can guarantee is the only puppet cabaret any of us have ever attended. Which begs the question, why isn’t Chicago swimming in puppet cabarets? The show was certainly awesome, full of puppets and things that puppets do.
Chicago, we, who have chosen to take your awesomeness in trust, and further it with our micro-granting, implore you – make more puppet cabarets. Post-haste. Sincerely, the trustees of the Chicago Awesome Foundation.
(Seriously, if you were an act in the show on Monday, and you’re reading this, we know you have awesome in you, please let us fund your next awesome project to the tune of $1,000, it worked out for Lacy, it could work for you!)
Keeping with tradition, Chris hands over money in the creepiest manner possible.
