“Squeeze My Cans” Review by Emily Johnson

“Squeeze My Cans”  Review by Emily Johnson

Highly Recommended **** Scientology has always been interesting to people outside it. They discourage journalists, psychiatrists, and any outsiders to pry into their affairs, which are open secrets now because of the number of ex-Scientologists, many of them disgruntled and [Read More]

“Batsu” at Kamehachi, Old Town

Tonight we made a trip to Japan, or should I say, the food and entertainment of Japan, but in Old Town. The restaurant where the action takes place is Kamehachi located in its new digs at 1531 N. Wells Street. As we entered the building, and walked towards the dining area, [Read More]

“My Son The Waiter- A Jewish Tragedy”

“My Son The Waiter- A Jewish Tragedy”

“The Bacon Brothers come to Arlington Heights”

“The Bacon Brothers come to Arlington Heights”

“Heels Over Head” reviewed by Sean Kugler

“Heels Over Head”  reviewed by Sean Kugler

One of the best things about summer is the fact that taxes are over. Most people are happy about this. But then again, most people aren’t Barb Turb. The first character to grace the stage wasted no time lamenting over the realization that her creation TurboTax is no [Read More]

“An Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse Songbook”

“An Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse Songbook”

Highly Recommended ***** There are songs and there are songwriters that have fame and yet many people have no idea who they are or where the songs they created came from. Confused? You should be! The songwriters I am making reference to are Anthony Newley and Leslie [Read More]

“Oh What A Night” Frankie Valli- first time at Ravinia!

If you were not one of the standing room only visitors to Ravinia on June 12, you missed out on a very special night. While all of the events and shows at Ravinia (Lake County’s treasure), this was even more special. Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, after all these [Read More]
