The American Theatre Critics Association (ATCA) selected Chicago as the site of its 39th annual conference, June 13-17, 2012.
It was the fourth time Chicago hosted an ATCA conference, more than any other American city, and the first time since 2002. The conference host was Jonathan Abarbanel at firstname.lastname@example.org
After Chicago, some members joined host Anne Siegel (email@example.com) for a follow-up trip to Milwaukee, a relatively short drive from Chicago, for activities June 17-20.
The Milwaukee trip included a visit to Ten Chimneys, the historic summer residence of theater legends Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, and other noted theaters and sites.
