DE USURIS

Summertime offers up bountiful entertainment in and around Chicago so we have put together THE LIST of events, many at low or no cost, to explore. Whether you make a date for Movies in the Park or discover all that the new Chicago Riverwalk has to offer, the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events has a range of music, art and market fare for everyone.

One of the most anticipated theatrical events of the summer is the return of the critically-acclaimed Lookingglass production of Moby Dick which will run from June 7 to September 3rd. Ragtime swings in at Griffin Theatre this weekend and Native Gardens at Victory Gardens. We join the Goodman in wishing Stacey Keach a speedy recovery and return to Pamplona this weekend.  The Goodman is also offering Objects in the Mirror (extended to June 3rd) and Ah Wilderness is on deck.  Don’t miss Parade now playing at Writers Theater and Chicago at Drury Lane through June 18th.

Our Conversations FTA podcast this week includes singer Joan Curto whose new cabaret show Happy Talk debuts at Davenport’s June 9th through 11th. We are also featuring a conversation with Paul Becker of Carl Becker and Son on the making of violins and cellos. There’s live music at Winter’s Jazz Club with Elaine Dame, Andy's Jazz Club with Typhanie Monique and Jeannie Tanner, and Once Upon a Time will be a great night out in Skokie!

Monday Night Live at Petterino’s will celebrate their 10th anniversary in September! This week, the cast of the Skokie Theatre production of Spelling Bee will be performing. It is always a great night with Denise McGowan Tracy and Beckie Menzie. Special menu. Reduced valet parking. No cover. Check it out!
