AFTER A DECADE of planning, a $35 million, 1,500-seat theater for music and dance will begin taking shape along the lakefront in Chicago's Millennium Park. Construction begins in September for Music and Dance Theatre Chicago, designed by Thomas Beeby. It will occupy a 110- by 220-foot space and share a common wall with a new outdoor music pavilion conceived by architect Frank Gehry. Joyce A. Moffatt, general manager of the project, reports that about $24 million has been raised from local sources for construction and operating costs. Moffatt has begun scheduling the fall 2001 season, which so far is to include performances by Ballet Chicago, Dance Center of Columbia College, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Joffrey Ballet of Chicago, and Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago.
