Babes With Blades: Run 2

If a benevolent playwright offered to create a show just for you, what part would you play?

Made up of all-new scenes composed by the cast, as well as a few old favorites, Run 2 gave Chicago audiences a taste of the kinds of roles the Babes wish were available to us in mainstream theatre.
