Leslie's Omnibus

Theater District

Last night I got to see one of my absolute favorite actors in not one, but two incredible plays! Brian Dennehy was at the Goodman Theatre doing "Hughie" by Eugene O'Neill and "Krapp's Last Tape" by Samuel Beckett. He was excellent in the first and outstanding in the second. (Yeah, he may be aging... but he still blows my skirt up.)

If this particular one-two punch ever comes your way, run, don't walk, to get yourself tickets!

Sunday night, I'm off to the Irish American Heritage Center to see Seanachai Theatre Company's production of "Dancing at Lughnasa." If you've never seen a show by Seanachai, you're missing a real treat.

Finally, I just saw that Mandy Patinkin and Patti Lupone will be playing at the Cadillac Palace from the second through the seventh of March. I may just have to go see them, too.

You know, I had forgotten how much I love theater, and it's a crying shame, seeing that I work within walking distance of the Cadillac Palace, the Goodman, the Shubert, the Blackstone and the Chicago theaters.

I'm working on less talk and more action when it comes to buying tickets to coming attractions.

I love Dennehy!

And let's look at what will be playing in July - I'll definitely want to join you. People out here think we have 'culture' but no, it's pitiful!

Definitely! I'll keep my eyes open for something good.
