The League of Chicago Theatres announces the launch of, a comprehensive, searchable database of performing arts venues and rehearsal facilities in Chicagoland. The website serves as a free, public and centralized resource connecting artists and performing arts organizations with rehearsal and performing arts facilities that are available for rental.  "Finding suitable, affordable rehearsal or performance space can be a time-consuming, costly, and frustrating task," says Deb Clapp, Executive Director of the League of Chicago Theatres. " helps save time and money and serves as a valuable resource for connecting both organizations and artists with their space needs."

The winners of The Joffrey Ballet’s the second annual Choreographers of Color Award are Carlos dos Santos, Jr., Ray Mercer and Bennyroyce Royon. World premiere work by the artists will be presented in Choreographers of Color Award 2012: Winning Works at Chicago’s Harris Theater on March 11, 2012.
