Annoyance Theatre on the move

The Annoyance Theatre, a venerable Chicago comedy theater, is on the move. Jennifer Estlin, the theater's owner and executive producer, said Wednesday that it will exit its Uptown digs on the same block of North Broadway as the Uptown Theatre and move to 851 W. Belmont Ave. in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood.

Estlin said the theater has signed a 10-year lease for 13,000 square feet of raw space, alllowing it to perform and hold its many classes in the same building.

The Annoyance exit is a blow for the Uptown entertainment district, of which the Annoyance theater and bar was an anchor.
