I think that Valparaiso Theatrical Company’s stylish production of “Prelude to a Kiss” is their best yet.
Recently, I had a wonderful invitation - to see “CPS Shakespeare! Hamlet”. 28 students and teachers from nine Chicago High Schools starred in a performance of “Hamlet” on the awesome Courtyard Theatre stage. These kids were terrific!
I’ve seen many performances of “Hamlet”, some good, some not-so-good, this shortened version of “Hamlet” was unique!
Marian Theatre Guild’s production of “Sunset Boulevard” reminds me of those old black and white noir dramas from the 30’s, and of course the boulevard is in Hollywood.
When thinking about the victims of World War II, history books never include the children of Germany. Steppenwolf’s poignant production of “The Book Thief,” the One Book, One Chicago selection for 2012, is well worth seeing.
The centerpiece of “The Haunting of Hill House,” Beatniks’ new thriller, is the house - locked doors, creaking stairs, seriously creepy housekeeper and all.
As I watched “Black N Blue Boys/Broken Men” I couldn’t believe how easily Dael Orlandersmith transitioned between the five characters with their distinctive accents , first as boys, then as men.
My 3 ½ year-old granddaughter, Molly, loved “Harold and the Purple Crayon.” I think that’s the best recommendation I can make for the Chicago premiere of Crockett Johnson’s enchanting children’s story.
“Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” is described as an emo-punk-rock-modern-day-vaudeville exploration of the rise of our 7th and most controversial presidents. It’s all that, and more, and it’s brilliant!
