The Gloves Come Off...

Literally. Leaves of Grass, a Nude Choral Reading is coming to Chicago. And yes, you read that right, "a Nude Choral Reading." Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, once considered immoral, is transformed by naked performers rhythmically chanting poems from the collection in an adaptation by Jeremy Bloom. You can see it all (yes, all) this Friday, October 1 at Links Hall in Lakeview (3435 N. Sheffield) at 7:30pm or 10pm. Admission is $15 ($10 for students or seniors) online or at the door.
