4-ISH is Del-ISH-ious

4-ISHThe Chicago Children’s Theatre brings in the New Year with the Chicago premiere of the international sensation 4- ISH. The Amsterdam based performance troupe combines Acrobatic stunts, street and break dancing, dancing on inline skates, video art, a live DJ and more. I was really impressed by their ability to utilize such an amazing array of diverse and unique talents and marry them in a way that eloquently showed off each person’s total uniqueness.

The Snow Queen

The Snow QueenThe Snow Queen is a lovely Holiday production that tells the story of two childhood sweethearts- Gerda and Kai, who grow up in love together but are separated for a time as they grow into adulthood by the lonely and powerful Snow Queen. This production really reminds me of the old Chicago theatre days with its minimalist, modern and sparing production but which packs a lot of punch. The entire ensemble cast sings beautifully with many of the characters playing their own instruments as well.

Wicked’ Strong Girl Power!

Wicked ThumbnailAs I was thoroughly enjoying the many wonderful themes in this show I couldn’t help but feel a tiny pang of jealousy for all the little girls who are growing up with this musical as part of their psychological repertoire. I really wanted to be a witch when I was little. I wanted to be a good witch who casts spells to bring baby birds back to life when they fell from their nests. I wanted a magic spell to put the lizard’s tails back on when my brothers pulled them off,

Colin QuinnColin Quinn packed 'em in and delivered a fantastic hour plus set at the Lakeshore Theater last weekend. Colin talks fast and delivers joke after joke with such rapidity that I couldn't hear everything he said over the laughter. I loved his stuff about Brad Pitt traveling the world in designer duds, with a tired, stunned look on his face, and so...

Jamie Kilstein Kills ‘em

Jamie KilsteinThere is a certain kind of poise I look for in a seasoned comic, the kind of relaxed rhythm that professional musicians also have that lets you know right from the start, this guy is going to be funny and this guy is going to control the audience with ease. Jamie Kilstein definitely has this rhythm and poise. It is a pleasure to watch as Jamie riffs...

Janeane Garofalo

"I guess I just prefer to see the dark side of things. The glass is always half empty. And cracked. And I just cut my lip on it. And chipped a tooth." Janeane Garofalo

In a world that seems increasingly full of giggly, cooing blonds and pantyless, camera hungry, dyed blonds - Janeane Garofalo’s black hair, tattooed arms, funky eyeglasses and whip smart humor are as refreshing to me as a cool breeze on a 110 degree summer day.

Kristin Schaal – “Funny Lady!”

Kristin SchaalAt The Lakeshore Theater

Our first hysterical glimpse of Kristin Schaal is projected from a live camera backstage as she wolfs down a giant ice cream cone and snarls to her partner that she must finish it before taking the stage.

The Bobs PhotoTonight I got to hear The Bobs with current Bob lineup, Richard Bob Greene, Amy Bob Engelhardt, Matthew Bob Stull, and Dan Bob Schumacher at the Lakeshore Theatre. Let’s just say I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The Bobs have been “bobbing” along for 25 years with two of the original members still intact.

A Family Knight!

Louie Anderson PhotoLouie Anderson Live at The Excalibur Casino

When I went to see Louie Anderson perform live at Excalibur Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, I expected to see one of the best - a master of comedy - and that’s exactly what I got! There is not much in Vegas that the whole family can enjoy so Louie’s clean and very funny stage show is a must-see, especially for anyone traveling with family members under the age of 18 looking to rekindle family chuckles together.
