Happy Holidays to all!
April...warm..cold...will the weather hold so I can get out in the garden...in my spare time?
Well...we are keeping busy, Bob's at Profiles, I'm looking forward to being back with the Bernie Sahlins Rep at the Art Institute and also Musical Mondays on April 27th. Oh and American Blues! We're opening "Side Man" soon and I'll be doing the audio description and touch tour on May 10th--if you have any blind or low vision friends tell them to contact me!
Love from our little family, Suz, Bob and Lucy aka SuzBo
"I had prepared myself for a reprise of the virtuoso nastiness of Edward Albee. Walbert is so far above Albee's sentimentality, her intellect so clear, strong and unsentimental by comparison, that ten minutes in I felt ashamed of how badly I'd misread her play...
Robert Breuler as Joel is lovable, hateful, admirable and contemptible...Cale Haupert personifies the Midwestern doper mediocrity in Peter...and Stephanie Chavara suggests Charlotte's inner conflicts with a gesture, a look. Liz Zweifler as Sara made me want to read Sara's books that "beat Didion at her own game."
Do you live for the exhilaration of being ruthlessly enlightened by a mind superior to your own? Then go see this play." Bill Sweetland, NewCity Chicago
(773) 549-1815, $40. Through May 3.
The Bernie Sahlins Repertory Players reunite to pay tribute to W.B. Yeats with one of Bernie's wonderful shows we did with him at the Poetry Foundation.
A cast of well-known local actors - Matthew Brumlow, LaShawn Banks, Suzanne Petri and John Mohrlein - brings to life the dramatic biography and gripping words of Irish poet William Butler Yeats on the occasion of the 150th anniversary year of his birth and the exhibition Ireland: Crossroads of Art and Design, 1690–1840. Son of a well-known Irish painter, Yeats was one of the greatest poets of the 20th century.
Meet Mr. Yeats, written by Bernard Sahlins, features seminal poems, ranging from the serene "The Lake Isle of Innisfree" to the terrifying "The Second Coming." The performers will delve into the details of his complex love life, follow his dabbling in the occult, and explore his founding of the Abbey Theatre in Dublin.
Presented with the Poetry Foundation and the Consulate General of Ireland
