“Desert Cool” Reviewed by Sean Kugler

 Recommended *** On a cool Friday evening, a cool show transported its audience from present-day Chicago to present-dayish Los Angeles. After a minute long overture comprised of bright lights and hip jazz, two very interesting looking fellows appeared on stage. An Albert [Read More]

“Squeeze My Cans” Review by Emily Johnson

“Squeeze My Cans”  Review by Emily Johnson

“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”

They say that laughter is the best medicine for whatever ails you. This being the case, I heartily suggest you make a trek to Skokie to view Comedian Brad Zimmerman’s one man show “My Son The Waiter- A Jewish Tragedy”. It is a scream! This is a ninety [Read More]

“The Bacon Brothers come to Arlington Heights”

“The Bacon Brothers come to Arlington Heights”

  The Bacon Brothers are anything but a typical rock band. Brothers Michael and Kevin Bacon, each accomplished in their own right, play gritty rock that is unapologetically unique and authentic.  Their style can best be described by their first album title, Forosoco, a [Read More]

“Work In Progress” reviewed by Sean Kugler

Highly Recommended **** It didn’t take long to realize why Abby McEnany is considered to be a very unique performer across the city. No sooner had the show started when Abby came dancing on stage to the sounds of MC Luscious 90’s hit, “Boom! I Got Your Boyfriend.” [Read More]

“Thaddeus and Slocum: A Vaudeville Adventure”  Reviewed by Carol Moore

Highly Recommended **** “Thaddeus and Slocum: A Vaudeville Adventure” is a certified hit in my book!  Although the new production at Lookingglass might seem light and frivolous at first glance, it actually deals with some serious and provocative topics.  “Thaddeus [Read More]

“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]
