"Theatre as entertainment has kinda played itself out. We have 400 theatre companies in Chicago, let's go back to the roots of theatre and have it be a place where the city comes together to see into ourselves and to really use art, great art, great theatre, excellence in writing, directing, acting and design.  Let's make powerful theatre about important stuff" - Anthony Moseley, artistic director Collaboraction Theatre
