Many of you have read Jacob’s reviews on ChicagoCritic.com. He is an astute writer who understands theater far beyond his years. Aroundthetown is pleased to announce that Jacob is joining our staff and will be handling some of the theater (and perhaps concert) reviews for us. It is with great pleasure that we add him to the staff and I know that you, our readers will enjoy reading his views on the many productions he will cover. Jacob, over the past few years has covered more than 500 productions in the Chicago theater scene, and I am hopeful that some of his followers will be happy that he has only changed sites and will still be on the scene. I know that many of the Jeff Award Members were happy to hear that he was doing this and some of the theater publicists were also elated to know that I am fortunate enough to have a bright young writer like Jacob as a part of my team. WELCOME, Jacob!!!
