TRENT CARLINI BRINGS THE KING TO LIFE

fans are treated to a very intimate Elvis experience that is a true celebration of Elvis’ life and music

When you think of Las Vegas many things come to mind – gambling, bright lights, monstrous hotels and casinos to which one can easily get lost, glamorous showgirls, dry heated air, the Bellagio fountain, The Rat Pack, Bugsy Segal and Seigfried and Roy. But maybe the largest association one has with Vegas is none other than the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley himself. After flopping in Las Vegas during the 1950s (they just…

STAR WARS PARODY WITH BURLESQUE DANCERS? YAY FOR PASTIES!

It makes you want to watch the whole sequel again on Saturday night

Particularly known for their Burlesque Parodies fulfilling our inner nerd’s greatest desires to see Indiana Jones or even Star Trek, the 80 seat venue on Milwaukee Avenue in Bucktown, is the quirky gem that is Gorilla Tango Theater.  An eclectic presenter of live entertainment from dance and theater to storytellers and magicians during Brain Surgeon Theater, their Saturday family Matinee shows the production now bring us a new addition to the collection.   Following “The…

THE GRAVEDIGGER - HAUNTING AND BEAUTIFUL

That horror can be intertwined with beauty and love makes this story penetrating

If you’ve ever wondered what may have filled in the omitted bits and fragments in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, First Folio’s “The Gravedigger” takes the mystery away while presenting its own mystery. Ingeniously creating a story within a story, “The Gravedigger” takes us to a heartbroken and devastated Dr. Victor Frankenstein who searches to destroy the monster who killed his family – a monster he breathed life into himself. Meanwhile, as Victor hunts, the monster encounters…

NEUROTICALLY FUNNY - WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN

you will not need a Valium to relax and laugh at this wonderful woman driven comedy

I absolutely adored Theatre at the Center’s production of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown based on the Pedro Almodvar film of the same name from beginning to end.  Set in the 1980's in a part of uptouching and hilarious upper crust Madrid, "Verge" tells the hilarious and touching story of three women who are literally brought to the edge of sanity by their lovers.  Cory Goodrich is dynamite in the lead role of…

EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL - BLOOD AND LAUGHS GALORE

Though some moments are overly laden with campiness to the point of plain silliness, the brunt of the show’s humor is right on.

Granted, fans of the Evil Dead films starring our favorite B-list star, Bruce Campbell, will certainly enjoy this stage version more than most, having already consumed a taste for the unconventional humor that made the trilogy such a big cult following success. Still, though maybe not for everyone, Evil Dead the Musical, is a raucous night of deadpan deliveries, inappropriate slapstick, splattering bodily fluids, sexual innuendos, campy stereotypes and jokes so bad you can help but…

MYSTERY, INTRIGUE AND EXCITEMENT – THE GAME’S AFOOT

is really consistently humor rich from beginning to end

I just love a good whodunit. Who killed who, how and why – the suspects, the accusers, the whole shebang. The Game’s Afoot, currently running at Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook, is just that – murder, suspense and also plenty of laughs. The Game’s Afoot by Ken Ludwig, author of “Lend Me A Tenor” and “Moon Over Buffalo”, is a very engaging mystery/comedy that revolves around William Gillette, an actor best known for his on…
