Hey, c'mon guys, what's the scuttlebutt on the film Robert Altman's shooting there?

If Altman is true to form, he should be very involved with the nitty-gritty of the dancer's lives and work.

Don't make me wait for the E! special...

I don't have much scuttlebutt, but the Chicago Tribune reports that people are invited to don their rain gear and attend an outdoor performance/film shoot Saturday evening. How do they know it will rain? They will make it rain! and blow! I don't know what the plot is, but it apparently involves typical yucky Chicago weather.

I'd love to go, even though the high for the day will be 65 degrees Fahrenheit, and the evening promises to be much cooler. Hm, what a great evening: sitting for three hours in a cold, wet blow and watching ballet. Unfortunately, I am taking the kids to Riverdance. My husband, who does not have a Riverdance ticket, says maybe he'll go watch the Joffrey in "Puddledance".

Here's the link to the Trib's story:

Yes, unless the temperature drops a whole lot, and then they can preview the snow scene from Nutcracker ...

Or they could be dancing "Light Rain" - no joke, that's a ballet in their active repertoire!;)

Maybe Light Rain will do, but I think the prediction is for heavy storms and strong winds!

(Although it is a lovely piece -- and I'm jealous that I didn't think of it.)

Perhaps "Caught"?

Actually, from what I hear, they're going to be doing Arpino's "Suite Saint-Saens" and Lubovitch's "My Funny Valentine".
