CHICAGO – A neurotic New Yorker, Woody Allen has been a fixture in Hollywood for more than 50 years. After racking up 73 writing credits and 50 in the director’s chair, Allen returned to Chicago on July 19, 2014 to walk the red carpet for his new romantic dramedy “Magic in the Moonlight”. The film stars Emma Stone and Colin Firth.

At the age of 79, our red-carpet video shows you Woody Allen’s enduring wit, discusses what he thinks is funny, reminisces about standup comedy in Chicago and recalls how much the now-vegetarion misses Windy City ribs. The video also includes interviews with executive producer Ron Chez and Metropolitan Capital CEO Michael Rose. Enjoy our red-carpet video below!

While it lacks the oomph and memorability of Allen’s “Blue Jasmine,” which in 2013 scored and Oscar for Cate Blanchett’s leading role, “Magic in the Moonlight” fascinatingly focuses on the seance, psychic and magic craze of the 1920s. Emma Stone plays an alleged medium and Colin Firth is the man out to debunk her who instead falls in love with her.

“Magic in the Moonlight” opens in limited theatres on July 25, 2014. Enjoy our red-carpet photo of Woody Allen below!

  • Speech & Debate (stage play)

    CHICAGO – “Speech & Debate,” the latest production from the mighty Brown Paper Box Company, continues their tradition of thinking outside that “box” in presenting storefront theater that makes a statement and a difference. “Speech” goes inside America by showcasing the outsiders… those who create art because they can’t get it right in real life. This non-equity Chicago stage play premiere is finely tuned and wonderfully acted, and runs through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • We're Gonna Be Okay

    CHICAGO – The 1960s were a time of historical social transition. The movements – civil rights, feminist, gay rights – all had roots in that tumultuous decade. The Chicago premiere of Basil Kreimendahl’s “We’re Gonna Be Okay” echoes all of those movements in its characters, and collides them against the October 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the American Theater Company through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
