“La La Land” is steamrolling into the Oscars, and tied “All About Eve” (1950) and “Titanic” (1997) for most nominations in Oscar history with 14, including Best Picture, Actor, Actress and Director. Other multiple nominations went to the searing drama “Moonlight” (eight) and the stage adaptation “Fences” (four). Also notable is that six African American actors will compete for Oscars, one year after the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.

Coming off the Golden Globes earlier this month, the Oscar nominations contained no surprises in the major categories, pretty much following the pattern established by the Globes.

  • 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. Click here for details, including ticket information.

  • 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.
