(Chicago, IL) – The 20,000 sq/ft, two floor creation and performance facility will reside in the new Entertainment Row district. It will be helmed by Wendell Tucker, CEO of Theori Stages, and Andre DuBois, CEO of Reflective Music. The two companies have been making waves in the Chicago Theater scene over the past 10 years with their original productions and amazing lineup of talent. The venue will feature (1) Grande Theater, (1) Black Box theater, (4) Dance Studios, (2) Recording Studios, (2) Music Rehearsal Rooms, (2) Video Editing Bays, (1) Photography Studio, (1) Video Production Room, and (1) Conference Room.
“The concept behind TFAC is to give artists who do not have the funds, political connections, and staffing, the opportunity to workshop, market, and produce their work at a polished, professional level.” – Wendell J. Tucker
With investors being secured, TFAC is now launching an Indiegogo campaign to assist with the property acquisition. “We intend for this to be a venue for the people, and hope they will see the value and invest in us. The dividends it will pay to our community are game changing” said Tucker of the campaign. The physical venue would function as a performance venue, training facility, nightlife hotspot, networking hub, and a fine dining establishment.
“We will be giving back to the Chicago Arts community in a very real way. It’s notoriously expensive to produce in Chicago and there are limited opportunities on the South Side. This helps with both problems, and will hopefully start a trend of bringing more affordable, high quality entertainment to the South Side.” – Andre DuBois
