Theater on the Lake: The Chicago Summer Theater Festival presents 8 plays in 8 weeks, showcasing a strong cross section of Chicago's rich off-Loop theater community.  MPAACT presents Blackademics by Idris Goodwin; Directed by Shepsu Aakhu and Marie Cisco.  Two female African-American scholars break down ideas while breaking bread, celebrating black history month in their favorite bistro.  They become so deeply engrossed in spirited discourse - weaving personal and political, academic and pop culture, and boasts and criticisms - that they lose sight of the strange ways of the bistro until it reveals its true nature.  This metaphysical comedy dramatizes one of our longest running debates: what does it mean to be a Black in America?
