PODCAST INTRO: Anna and Hannah ii-Epstein are the co-artistic directors of “Nothing Without a Company” theater troupe. I first encountered “Nothing Without a Company” in 2012, when I experienced their insightful and original production “Loom”… Since then, I’ve seen and reviewed “Down the Moonlit Path,” a sensational interactive play, the frenetic “Punk Punk” – which was written by Hannah – and currently “The Kid Thing,” which we talk about in this interview. Listen now to the podcast interview below!

  • Monica Raymund on set for 'Tanya'

    CHICAGOTV fans know Monica Raymund as paramedic Gabby Dawson on the long-running “Chicago Fire.” But the talented actor is expanding her range, debuting her first film as director, “Tanya,” at the Midwest Independent Film Festival on Tuesday, August 1st, 2017. The short film – written by Sam Forman – will be part of “Female Filmmakers Night” at the Midwest Indie, and is part of Raymund’s involvement with Hidden Tears Project, an organization dedicated to raising consciousness by creating media on gender inequality, sexual abuse and human trafficking.

  • They're Playing Our Song

    CHICAGO – During the late disco era of the 1970s, an unusual musical opened on Broadway. Essentially a two person stage play, “They’re Playing Our Song” involved a songwriter and a lyricist who develop a stronger connection than just writing partners. The always passionate Brown Paper Box Co. of Chicago has unearthed this chestnut with a bright and fun revival at the Rivendell Theatre through August 20th, 2017.
