Say it ain't so! Our favorite experimental theater house, the Bedlam Theatre, is getting ousted from its space of four years to make way for a mosque. The Bedlam was on a month-to-month lease with its landlord, Fine Associates, who made it clear from the get-go that its situation was temporary and that the property was slated for eventual redevelopment. The news, however, still came as a shock, as Bedlam directors expected the redevelopment plans were still aways off.
As it stands, the Bedlam has a mere seven weeks left before it's booted, and staffers are scrambling to figure out a contingency plan. Bedlam's programming is booked out well past the move date and they are currently looking for a new space, or at least somewhere to move their booked shows until something is figured out.
The Strib has a detailed article on the subject here.
