Here's the latest news from our friends over at Babes With Blades
Like Hunger Games and women as protagonists who don't just lay around like the Disney coma princesses, waiting to be rescued? Come check out some real life women who kick booty with sword fights & stage combat.
Here at ChiIL Live Shows, Babes With Blades have been favorites of ours for years. Their shows are aimed at adults, but my tweens adore them, too!

BWBTC is proud to welcome our newest Ensemble member, Artistic Associate Allison Reinke! Ally has been working hard on Chicago stages (Roundhouse Productions' all-female RESERVOIR DOGS, Wayward Productions' "biker" RICHARD III) and on our Board of Directors this past year. We're excited to announce that in 2014, she will also be transitioning into her new role as BWBTC's Managing Director, as Amy E. Harmon moves into doing more artistic roles with the company. Welcome aboard, Ally!
Also in the show is Aila Peck, who you may remember from BWBTC's production of Julius Caesar earlier this year!
