National treasures/actors/singers/musicians, Jessie Fisher and Erik Hellman created a joyful noise and space for artists and audiences alike. It's our annual holiday variety show and you won't want to miss it -- live music from The Best Band Ever, story tellers, clowns, dance, surprise appearances, general merriment and a friggin' gift exchange... I AM SO EXCITED TO BE REUNITED WITH THESE HUMANS!
Sofia was recently hired as an empathy coach at a debt collection agency—and clearly, she has her work cut out for her. These employees can barely identify what an emotion is, much less practice deep, radical compassion for others. An outrageous play about the absurdity—and the danger of complicity in a world where some people’s feelings matter more than others. I've wanted to work at A Red Orchid Theatre since moving here and am thrilled it's in this Chicago premiere. I cannot believe I get to finally work with the brilliant Jess McLeod, Lawrence Grimm, Levi Holloway, Sadieh Rifai, Paul Dillon, Bernard Gilbert and Jennifer Jelsema.
