A Note to you all - My Friends and Collaborators

Dear Friends, The Mammals are getting ready to close one chapter and open another one. If you haven't heard, we are moving into a new home at the end of the Month. The Zoo Studios down in the basement at 4001 N. Ravenswood Avenue is closing it's doors. We are moving up (literally) to a big beauty renovated space on the 2nd floor of the same building (the Mammals are evolving). This new space means that we'll still have the same location, but we'll have more space, more creative freedom, and a more luxurious and comfortable space to work in and to share our art in.

We've made a lot of great memories in the basement space. We are hoping you'll come and share this final great memory with us, DEVILS DON'T FORGET. This show is one I'm really proud of, and I love these performers (along with lots of love to those of you who helped us realize this play in previous incarnations)! We've got just 4 more shows before we close the production and before we close the basement doors forever.

Having had the privilege and the space to create and share my work with you all has been the most fulfilling thing in my life. It was a little less than 3 years ago that the Mammals moved into the Zoo Studios. Since then we've produced a half dozen shows, expanded the company to include multitudes of actors, writers, designers, and soon... directors as well.

We hope to see you in the old space with us once more before it all ends and the rebirth begins! If you can come out, please do. If you need a comp because times are tight, let me know. Don't get me wrong, we need your support financially (now more than ever since we are making this move), but that truly is eclipsed by my desire to share everything I have as an artist with you, my friends and collaborators!

Let me know if you are coming by to say farewell to the basement and/or if you want to catch us for a drink after the show!
