The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events wouldn’t confirm this when I asked, but word is that New York-based producer and director Shoshona Currier is relocating to Chicago to fill one of the precious jobs that opened up when nearly all the city’s arts programmers were let go in the great DCA-to-Tourism-and-back Shakman-inspired shell game the city’s been playing over the last year and a half. Unconfirmed title: director of performing arts.
