“Lone Star” and “Laundry and Bourbon”–– billed as two plays about small-town Texas life––skillfully deliver on the promise. It’s exactly the way I, with my feet firmly planted in the Midwest, picture it
Billed as “a rich tapestry of dance performance creatively sparked by the Windy City,” Thodos Dance Chicago’s “Chicago Inspired” celebrates today’s and yesterday’s dance artists with today’s dance moves
The Actors Gymnasium’s Circuscope Winter 2015 bills itself as “entertainment that flies.” Does it ever! It flies in the face of imagination, flies in the face of gravity, flies in the face of reality! Come fly with me!
Drop everything and make plans to see THE ODD COUPLE. What a romp! Two woefully incompatible roommates (I know married couples like this, too!) demonstrate the power of friendship, the joy of companionship and the benefits of learning to get along
You may have decided that this is surely a play for “Senior Citizens.” I say "Death Tax" has truth and wisdom for everyone alive. It goes to the very core of the great question, the meaning and value of life

THE DANCE OF DEATH is an emotional roller coaster ride without a winner or loser. It has the power to transport you to a different emotional time and place. Don’t miss this mesmerizing evening of theater
If you haven’t seen Gypsy at Chicago Shakespeare Theater yet, I hope you’ll want to rush out and buy tickets after you read this review. If you've already seen it, you may want to go back and see it again
Even if it were difficult to get to The Actors Gymnasium—it's not, it's at the Noyes stop on the Purple “L” line—it would be worth the trip to see The Magical Exploding Boy and The Invisible Circus. Don't miss it
