  • 10 Oct 2023
  • 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Room 4G at the Gratz Center, 126 E. Chestnut Street, Chicago, Illinois



Renowned former Sun-Times theater and dance critic. Resident theater and dance critic on WTTW’s Chicago Tonight. Regular contributor for publications from Playbill and Dance Magazine to Chicago on the Aisle and a monthly column on music, theater, dance, and the visual arts for Jewish Chicago Magazine

Yes, that Hedy Weiss. 

Join us as Ms. Weiss appears in person, pulling back the curtain to reveal the thrills and challenges that come with being a theater and dance critic. She will also be treating us to a sneak preview of a few choice upcoming productions and even give us a peek at her career as a professional dancer before she leapt over the stage and into the audience to become one of the keenest observers of the theater and dance world. Let’s welcome with a “Standing O” one who stands shoulder to shoulder among Chicago’s pantheon of journalistic greats.
