“September Morning” begins in the first dark hours of September 12th, 2001, as five college freshmen live through the events and aftermath of 9/11 in a dorm room. Far away from their families, friends, and everything they’ve ever known for the first time, they stay up all night sharing stories, telling jokes, and asking themselves ‘what will it be like tomorrow?’ Out of the embers of a national tragedy, lifelong friendships are forged.

The Blue Whiskey Independent Film Festival is not-for-profit organization based in the greater Chicagoland area, and have presented their annual film fest since 2010. The festival seeks out bold and innovative filmmakers that utilize story elements in a new and exciting way, presenting character-driven independent cinema that is fueled by the filmmaker’s passion for the art, without the large studio support. For schedule and ticket purchasing information, click here.

  • 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.
