Theatre groups gear up for election
Shows update productions to mark occasion

Variety – by Sam Thielman
“The theater community doesn't always relish sharing the spotlight, but they have made an exception for next Tuesday. Various legiters are gearing up to mark the presidential election, including Tony Kushner, the Upright Citizens Brigade and the Chicago production of "Dirty Dancing." - On the box office side, producers are getting creative for what could easily be a sparsely populated night at the theater, given the interest in watching the results. "Broadway in Chicago," which includes Windy City productions of "Jersey Boys," "Wicked" and the recently opened "Dirty Dancing," will be offering all Nov. 4 seats at $44 in honor of the 44th president, whoever he may be. Announcements of the returns will be featured during intermission and after the curtain call. As for Broadway itself, it looks to be a quiet night, with the possible exception of thesp Rick Holmes, who gets to improv a few lines in "Monty Python's Spamalot."
And 44 people at A Tale of Two Cities?
