It’s an article of faith for many that Chicago theatre produces the best actors and artists. But what does it mean to be a Chicago theatre artist, when your physical address, at least part of the time, is in other cities? We talked to three actors, a director, and one very busy sound designer to get an idea of how the logistics of living in another town, but working a lot in Chicago (and vice versa) play out for them.

The second annual Chicago Producing Intensive Conference, co-sponsored by the League of Chicago Theaters and New York’s Commercial Theater Institute, took up residence this past weekend in a rehearsal hall at the Goodman Theatre. The location seemed apt, given the Goodman’s history of transferring nonprofit productions to commercial runs in New York, but the focus wasn’t on big institutions like the Goodman or even particularly on Broadway.
