Eric Roberts was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, and his younger sibling is Julia Roberts. He began his career on the soap opera “Another World” in 1977, and made his film debut – garnering a Golden Globe nomination – with “King of the Gypsies” (1978). He was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 1985 for “Runaway Train,’ and starred on Broadway in 1987 in “Burn This!” He is known for his intensity… his catchphrase is “Charlie, they took my thumbs!” from “The Pope of Greenwich Village.”

  • 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.
