If the cost, the crowds, and just the thought of salmonella-tainted hummus has you planning to stay away from this year’s Taste of Chicago, you may want to reconsider, especially if you’re a musical theater fan. Actors from a host of current and upcoming Broadway musicals — Dirty Dancing, Jersey Boys, and Wicked, among others — take the stage at Grant Park’s Petrillo band shell tonight at 6 PM.
