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!

  • It's NOT ALL About You John Michael

    CHICAGO – John Michael epitomizes the art of the monologue. The Chicago transplant, by way of Dallas, is moving on (he says temporarily) from the city that inspired his last show, “Meatball Seance,” after notorious and successful runs of his other one-man shows, “John Michael and the Order of the Penix” and “Dementia Me.” His farewell performance is his latest, another laugh riot, “It’s NOT ALL About You John Michael,” and will take place at Mary’s Attic in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood on March 1st, 2019.

  • Soccer Player in the Closet, The 2

    CHICAGO – Connecting to the theater collective Nothing Without a Company means a couple of things. One, you may visit parts of Chicago you’ve never seen before – in this case a plant store in an industrial area south of Humboldt Park – and two, you will see some daring and outside-the-box stagings. “The Soccer Player in the Closet” is their latest production – a World Premiere – and it provides what the title implies and beyond. The play runs through March 17th, 2019. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
