The new Hotel Lincoln is a window to the most dynamic part of Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Park.
Like the neighborhood, the hotel is historic yet fresh, fun though eccentric and active but relaxed. It's where the energy of urban life meets 1,200 green acres and Lake Michigan.

Nickel and Dimed is based on the Barbara Ehrenreich (2001) book Nickel and Dimed (On Not Getting By In America). It opens up a productive conversation about social class with a middle and upper-middle class, “traditional” theatre-going audience by engaging them in the story of a journalist who attempts to earn a living as a waitress, a maid, and a retail worker, only to discover how truly difficult it is for women to make ends meet on working-class wages.
