“Wild Honey” is the story of Gabby (Rusty Schwimmer), a 49 year-old who leaves her dead end relationship with Vince (Todd Stashwick) and moves back in with her mother (Paulette Cary). She also has no job prospects, so reluctantly she makes ends meet as a phone sex operator. This strange profession is interrupted by a caller named Martin (Timothy Omundson), who only wants Gabby’s counsel, and they begin to develop a friendship. He lives in Los Angeles, and Gabby uses a visit to her estranged sister (Stephnie Weir) as an excuse to hook up with the elusive Martin. The film makes its Chicago premiere this week, and drops on VOD January 22nd, 2019.

  • 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.

  • 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.
