Nearly every local friend I have is antsy for that eternally promised passenger-rail service to and from Chicago, and among those friends, all the ones who are also active in stage productions say variants of the same thing: "It'd make seeing Chicago theatre so-o-o much easier." Well, we still don't have that train. But the week before Christmas, we'll at least get a momentary respite from our complaining, because Chicago theatre is coming to us.
