Choosing Seasons is the first of a new series of events to be hosted by the recently expanded DLC. After celebrating its tenth anniversary season, the DLC replaced its 2015 Lab with a vision retreat for Chicago theatre luminaries to explore the Lab’s direction for the next 10 years and beyond.

Shortly after the retreat, DLC welcomed back committee member Wm. Bullion into a new role as Director of Programming, and introduced new member Tobi Mattingly as Director of Marketing & Communications. A larger announcement of the 2016 Lab and additional future events is forthcoming.
