Upcoming Suzanne Petri Events
Happy July, hope you are enjoying your summer! It comes and it goes doesn't it? Wearing sweaters and scarves and boots (yesterday) into July is a bit much! We'll have to make the most of he beautiful, warm and hot, hot days when they come. The garden is lush from all the rain though!
When we got home our little baby Lucy got sick and had to go in for emergency bladder surgery and then stay in the hospital for a week, with a catheter and a cone. She has been healing and seems to be totally healthy now, we have to keep her healthy with prescription food and making sure she does pee pee!
The end of the month is kicking into high gear for Bob, teaching at the Steppenwolf school and at Profiles, doing a workshop of a new play called "Mother Road," And then he goes into rehearsal for "The Rainmaker" at American Blues that will be fantastic! I am working on the scripts and shows and the CCP gala on October 18.
The REALLY important show coming up is

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
