CHICAGO – When faced with adversity, the best way around it is to somehow break into song. That is the feeling behind the Brown Paper Box Co.’s “Positively Present: An Uplifting Cabaret,” running April 7th and 8th at Mary’s Attic in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood. The event features company member Kristi Szczepanek as host, and presents song stylings by other company members, including Anna Schutz, plus some special guests.

Update: Details About Upcoming Building Implosion in ‘The Dark Knight’
CHICAGO – “Secret Scoop,” who first informed me of the upcoming Brach’s Candy building implosion for “The Dark Knight,” at 1:11 p.m. on Friday submitted updated information about this historic scene.
It is scheduled to happen between 10:30 a.m. and noon on Aug. 29.
This will be two buildings. The larger building is to be filled with flammable liquids and the second smaller, four-story building will be imploded.
This is the last big stunt for the film to be shot.
By the way, [Friday night’s] filming features five SWAT guys being thrown out of a window of a high-rise to hang while Batman goes about his business.
He doesn’t want to kill them. He just wants get them out of the way.
1:27 p.m. update: In a follow-up e-mail, I asked my source about the certainty of this new information. “Secret Scoop” said:
I just got off the phone with my contact before I e-mailed you. I even asked if that could be a false date just to throw off fans. [It’s real.]
4:10 p.m. update: Several people have written in asking me the address for this site. It is 401 N. Cicero Ave. in Chicago.
