Susan Sarandon portrays Isis in ‘A Bad Moms Christmas.’

CHICAGO – The holiday season officially kicks off on November 1st, 2017, with the early present of “A Bad Moms Christmas.” This sequel to the popular “Bad Moms” of last year is decorated with tinsel and has more badness, much of that generated from the stars of the first film… Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn. Joining these Bad Moms are three iconic actresses portraying their mothers… Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon. Every major cast member except Baranski came to Chicago last week to promote the film.

Last year’s “Bad Moms” was a surprise huge hit, essentially featuring stressed out mothers lashing out against the mendacity of their workaday domestic sameness. The sequel came naturally, as Christmas is a time for more stress, always in an attempt to create perfection. Susan Sarandon, Cheryl Hines, Kathryn Hahn, Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis took questions from Midwest journalists at a round table last week, including Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com.

In the first audio clip, Susan Sarandon talks about working in a film starring women, the relationship between mothers and daughters, and a bit about the Harvey Weinstein situation.


In clip number two, Cheryl Hines observes how similar her “Bad Moms” character is to her mother, and how women easily can become their mothers when raising kids of their own.


In clip three, Kathryn Hahn was ecstatic about working with Susan Sarandon, and how “A Bad Moms Christmas” is an inclusive film.


In clip four, Kirsten Bell talks about motherhood and expectations, and how all the “Bad Moms” shared their experiences.


And in clip number five, Mila Kunis has perspective on her experiences when she first came to America and a summary on Harvey Weinstein.

  • 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.
