Ashley Wheater joins the conversation this week to talk about his ten years at the Joffrey Ballet, the recently announced partnership with Lyric Opera and the upcoming opening of Giselle. Our PIcksInSix recommendations include FUN HOME, the world premiere of QUIXOTE: On the Quest for Self at Writers Theater, A View from the Bridge, Fun Home and Five Guys Named Moe. Last days for Court Theatre's Five Guys Named Moe and two great shows at Theater Wit: Bonnie & Clyde and The Heavens are Hung in Black.
This Week: HARD TIMES at Lookingglass and Porchlight's Billy Elliot at The Ruth Page Center. Lots of music around including brunch with Elaine Dame, Paul Marinaro at Winter's and Jeannie Tanner in Evanston. Petterino's Monday Night Live is the place to be this fall. Denise McGowan Tracy and Beckie Menzie are celebrating their 10th Anniversary and 11th Season with cast members from FUN HOME.
