Upcoming Suzanne and Bob Events

Dear Friends,
Happy New Year!!!
It is hard to believe it’s May and things just get more and more busy doing the work we call Show. Auditions, shows, rehearsals, readings, meetings….and then taking care of my men (Bob and Bill) my birdies and my Lucy!! However, my list got shorter by one as I have been relieved of my duties at Chicago Cabaret CCP…one less job! Down the list here you can see an article I wrote about that biz.

Just finished my work for Perennial Theatre Chicago (for this week) with a fabulous Board meeting Thursday, now working on audio describing Oresteia at DePaul Theatre School, for blind and low vision patrons of the theatre. If you know anyone who would like to attend the touch tour and A.D. they will not be disappointed! Sunday, May 12th, Happy Mother’s Day! It’s an excellent show, acting, directing, design, and a modern adaptation of this Greek Tragedy by Aeschylus.


Oresteia
by Aeschylus
adaptation by Robert Icke
directed by April Cleveland
The Theatre School at DePaul University 2350 N Racine Ave, Chicago, IL 60614

In an epic evening, follow the story of the House of Atreus—the world’s most powerful political family—through the eyes of Orestes, son of Klytemnestra and Agamemnon. Join us for the U.S. premiere of Robert Icke’s Olivier Award-winning adaptation of The Oresteia trilogy, a tale of vengeance, justice, family, and the inextricable link between violence abroad and violence at home. Recommended for mature audiences.
