Maybe I'm just getting old, but I tend to regard any new holiday songs, movies or TV shows with extreme suspicion.
When normal people start anticipating the holiday season, their main focus is on gift shopping, travel/vacation time, reunions with loved ones…and, of course, cookies. But for me, the highlight of the season is the holiday cards (and, of course, cookies).
Luna Gale Force: Playwright Rebecca Gilman and Director Robert Falls latest collaboration in January
If you were to assume that one of the hottest playwrights in Chicago is being interviewed in a trendy downtown coffee house or backstage at a theater, surrounded by hip sycophants…you would be very wrong. In fact, Rebecca Gilman is calling from her Wisconsin home, having moved to “higher gro…
Well, it’s that time of the year again: no more lazy, carefree evenings basking outdoors in the dappled sunlight. It’s time to get serious, buckle down and adhere to a strict routine. I’m speaking, of course, about the advent of a brand-new fall TV season.

I’m normally not one to brag, but I possess a very special skill: I can walk into any live-performance venue and predict who—out of the large crowd milling around in the lobby—will eventually be seated in close proximity to me.
Whether or not we're willing to admit it, the planning, acquisition, preparation and consumption of food dominates our lives. The most disciplined of us briefly interrupt our daily routines three times a day to eat a sensible breakfast, a light lunch, and a nourishing dinner. Those of us who…
When the phone rings and you see the name "John Mahoney" on the caller ID, it's a no-brainer that you're going to be talking about the actor's memorable roles in television and film and on stage with Chicago's Steppenwolf ensemble. Less predictable, on the other hand, are the topics of Speed…
I remember when I used to know things; I just don't remember the things I used to know.

True chocolate lovers have secrets. Deep, dark—and milk—chocolate secrets. They are filled with shame and self-doubt when their children—their own flesh and blood—innocently order strawberry milkshakes. They pretend to agree—unconvincingly—when their friends turn down the Death by Chocolate …
