Randi Russo/Jenn Kelly at Uncommon Ground, Chicago, IL!

If you like the music of Patti Smith, then you will love artist/singer/songwriter, Randi Russo! I first saw Russo perform at the Sidewalk Cafe in New York. (Hey Lach! Hope Europe is treating you well! Lach used to perform at and run the shows at Sidewalk.) I caught Randi and Jenn Kelly, on tour from Berlin with her nice band, Ben and Andy. It was such a fun night of music, I halfway expected Lach to come strolling through the door at any moment!

MOJADA at the Victory Gardens Theater in Chicago!

Maestros Luis Alfaro and Chay Yew have teamed up to reprise their artistic collaboration of last year's brilliant, OEDIPUS EL REY.  Mojada ends up being a tragicomedy of epic proportions spanning two countries and three generations with beautiful performances led by leads Sandra Delgado and (in a role somewhat reminiscent of Horton Foote's The Trip to Bountiful) Socorro Santiago.  Broadway ain't got nothin' on Chicago with productions like this...  Also, make sure to check out the special performance of Juan Francisco Villa's fantastic show, Empanada for a Dream on July 28th, 2013 at 7:30P. (Presented in association with Victory Gardens Resident Theater, Teatro Vista.)
