DE USURIS - PETER PAN, NEVERLAND AND BEYOND BELIEF
Actor and educator KATHLEEN RUHL joined the conversation to discuss a Chicago theatrical career that spans five decades and the role that her daughter, Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony Award nominee, Sarah Ruhl, wrote for her about her family in For Peter Pan On Her 70th Birthday. The Shattered Globe Chicago premiere production has now been extended through May 27th at Theatre Wit on Belmont.
Lots of musical theatre, large and small, all over town including Drury Lane's CHICAGO, Paramount's Jesus Christ Superstar, Lyric's My Fair Lady and Porchlight's Marry Me A Little. There are only a few chances left to see The Joffrey Ballet's Global Visionaries, Equus at Skokie Theatre, Waa-Mu's Beyond Belief and at Davenport's Cynthia Clarey, Colleen Raye and Sophie Grimm, and coming up, Bill Dyszel, who is featured in this week's Q & A.
