Created in 1991 on a vacant downtown lot known as Block 37, Gallery 37 is a space for the Chicago’s youth to practice art, to work with and be mentored by professional artists. Currently run by the not-for-profit After School Matters, it is a program created by Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs' Lois Weisberg and late Maggie Daley, wife of the city's former mayor, Richard M. Daley. Currently, the space features a show called TWENTY – a cabaret of songs, scenes and dances from 20 popular Broadway shows – performed by young and very talented “Triple Threats”, i.e. teens who can act, dance and, boy can they, sing!
There are eight shows left:
Monday August 6 – 12 noon and 7 pm,
Tuesday August 7 – 12 noon and 7 pm,
Wednesday August 8 – 12 noon and 7 pm, and
