      IMMEDIATE RELEASE


      THEATRE BUILDING CHICAGO DEBUTS 27TH SEASON WITH THE FIRST OF 24 NEW
      MUSICALS, PERFORMING HAVEN ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 20TH AT 7PM (Jewish art,
      photography& artifacts on exhibit at Chicago Fine Arts, 1216 W Belmont Ave -
      for pre & post show reception - see details below).

      October 3, 2003 --THEATRE BUILDING CHICAGO. HAVEN is slated to open the
      2003-2004 Monday Night Musical concert reading series on October 20th at 7pm
      at Theatre Building Chicago. WILL GRAVEMAN1S mesmerizing score, featuring
      lyrics by JIM HUGHES and book by TERRA ZIPORYN set the tone for this
      powerful story directed by SAM J. MICHAELS. On the eve of his 40th reunion
      with fellow Holocaust refugees, a father must face the tragic past he1s
      denied while confronting his misguided neo-Nazi son.

      Bookwriter TERRA ZIPORYN is a playwright and novelist (TIME'S FOOL and THE
      BLISS OF SOLITUDE). A current TBC Workshop member, her plays include
      WALLY1S PLAYHOUSE, co-authored with JIM HUGHES and WILL GRAVEMAN (produced
      and presented at Theatre Building Chicago) and THE TEACUP (produced at Yale
      University).

      Longtime workshop members and collaborators for nearly a decade,
      writer/lyricist JIM HUGHES and composer WILL GRAVEMAN have worked together
      on the musicals CRAZY LADY, GOLD FEVER, FIRE!CODES? and NOW MIGUEL, produced
      at regional theatres around Chicago.

      The MONDAY NIGHT MUSICALS is a series of eight concert readings of new works
      offered as part of a stepping stone process of nurturing new musicals.
      Members of the MUSICAL THEATRE WRITERS1 WORKSHOP commune annually, beginning
      in September to collaborate under the guidance of Artistic Director, JOHN
      SPARKS. Members develop individual projects with select new works presented
      in the MONDAY NIGHT MUSICAL series, as well as STUDIO PRESENTATIONS, ONE
      ACTS FOR KIDS and MINI MUSICALS - all performed at Theatre Building Chicago.
      Tony Award winning composer of URINETOWN and workshop alumni MARK HOLLMANN
      recently remarked, "S<caron>listening to their [writers1 workshop members] work was
      as inspiring and instructive as anything that I presented at the workshop."
      Mr. Hollmann1s new musical THE GROUCH will be performed January 19th, 2004
      as part of the MONDAY NIGHT MUSICALS series.
