Jeff Award-winning musical theatre performer Callie Johnson, a graduate of the Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department‘s BFA program in Musical Theatre Performance, will be a guest artist at Tap Out with Bailiwick, a benefit for the adventurous Bailiwick Chicago theatre collective. The event is organized by Bailiwick’s administrative coordinator Jon Martinez, an alumnus of Columbia’s Musical Theatre BA program. Tap Out with Bailiwick takes place on Tuesday, April 14, at Revolution Brewing Brewpub, 2323 N. Milwaukee in Chicago’s Logan Square. There’s an open tap from 7 to 9 PM, with classic pub fare and entertainment on hand to complement the brews. “This is a fun, lively beer-centric event with exclusive performances and a fantastic, trendy atmosphere,” says Martinez.
Bailiwick Chicago’s current production, the Chicago premiere of the off-Broadway musical Murder Ballad, runs through May 9 at the Flat Iron Arts Building, 1579 N. Milwaukee, in Chicago’s Wicker Park. Martinez served as the show’s assistant director/choreographer.
