You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to kick off 2018 as part of Steppenwolf's LookOut Series - Steppenwolf's performance series that presents the work of artists and companies across genre and form. We're delighted to welcome Katie Dow to YBR to share a story with us ... learn a little about Katie here and get your tickets!
Katie Dow is a preschool teacher who has always really loved stories- reading them and writing them, telling them and listening to them. She has told stories at Story Club, Story Lab, This Much is True, Loose Chicks, and Sidesplitter. She grew up in Minnesota but, aside from random stints backpacking the world, has spent her adult life in Chicago. Most of her free time is spent with her 3 pound Chihuahua, Mrs. Fezziwig. They're usually drinking wine and watching British reality TV.
What can you not live without?
One thing I cannot live without is change. I love change and new things so I go out of my way to create change in my life, whether it's rearranging the furniture in my apartment or a learning a new hobby or moving to a new country. The thought of a life that's nearly the same every day scares me more than anything else
