- Missed the great Prescott Tolk at the Lakeshore Theater a few weeks ago? More good standup there tonight as cool nerd Brian Posehn does the bits at 7:30 and 10:30. Added bonus: the hilarious Jamie Kilstein opens. My Flavorpill preview is here.
- Classy alt-country band The Spares bring their Americana sound to perhaps the best music room in the city, Schubas Tavern, tomorrow at 8pm. My Flavorpill preview is here.
- American Buffalo continues its run at Steppenwolf Theatre. Mamet, Letts, chewed scenery, general devastation. My Flavorpill preview is here.
- Over at the Goodman Theatre, Brian Dennehy stars in a double bill of American one-acts, Eugene O'Neill's Hughie and Samuel Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape, in a Broadway-bound preview. My Flavorpill preview is here.
Don't leave it to Jeff Zucker to support American creativity. Please do your part to keep our arts scene thriving, or at least give generously to Haiti.
Thank you for your consideration.
