CHICAGO – “Isn’t It Romantic” knows exactly what it is, and what it wants to be. It is simultaneously for people who love Romantic Comedy, and those who profess to hate them … but may secretly love them. It’s an amusing trifle that’s about as surprising as a heart shaped box of chocolates, but sometimes that’s what you want. Oscarman rating: 3.5/5.0
Rating: 3.5/5.0

Rebel Wilson stars as a cynical New York architect – one of the go to Rom-Com professions, second only to publishing in the annals of cinematic clichés – who hates Romantic Comedies for their unrealistic depictions of love. After a knock upon the noggin during a mugging, she wakes up to find herself trapped in a Romantic Comedy world where she’s the star.

“Isn’t It Romantic” opens everywhere on February 13th. Featuring Rebel Wilson, Adam Devine, Liam Hemsworth, Betty Gilpin, Priyanka Chopra and Jennifer Saunders. Screenplay by Erin Cardillo, Dana Fox and Katie Silberman. Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson. Rated “PG-13”

  • 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.
