aka SuzBo


Bob is doing "Genius" at Profiles Theatre,
a World Premiere by Kate Walbert
Directed by Artistic Director Darrell W. Cox, with Robert Breuler,
Stephanie Chavara, Cale Haupert and Liz Zweifler

"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

Chicago Cabaret Professionals Gala Benefit 2014 at
Park West "The Song's the Thing"

Bob Moreen and KT McCammond and I did a very special Sondheim medley…more to come!

"The evening's other tour force was an extended set-piece by three of Chicago's most admired cabaret artists: pianist-singer Bob Moreen and vocalists Suzanne Petri and KT McCammond. It takes a certain amount of life experience to be able to do justice to the songs of Stephen Sondheim, and these three got down to the gritty essence of his work. To call their performance a medley would be to underestimate its value, the artists somehow weaving segments of "Beautiful Girls," "The Ladies Who Lunch," "A Boy Like That" and five other songs into a dramatic whole, complete with a bit of choreography. Surely they ought to build an entire Sondheim evening out of this tremendous beginning." Howard Reich Chicago Tribune
