2014 The Anyway Cabaret (an animal cabaret)

Amber is so glad for the opportunity to work with TUTA on The Anyway Cabaret, after her previous TUTA collaboration was foiled by a broken ankle. Since moving to Chicago in 2008, Amber has worked with a number of storefront theatres, including Collaboraction (Jon, G.I.F.T), Redmoon (Last of My Species), Emerald City (Junie B. Jones), Commedia Beauregard (The Degas Plays), The Living Room Playmakers (On Display), and Strange Tree (Funeral Wedding, The Dead Prince). Amber also co-founded Grey Ghost Theatre, where she directed Sarah Ruhl's Melancholy Play, and the world premiere of The Book of Spectres, by co-founder Evan Chung. Amber is a graduate of Illinois Wesleyan University, and has also trained with the Siti Company and the American Studio at the Moscow Art Theatre. Thanks always to my family and friends who I love so much! 

TUTA is partially supported by Arts Work Fund for Organizational Development, The Light A City Fund, The Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation, The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, City Arts I and the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, The Illinois Arts Council, a state agency, The Saints, and Promet Source.
