CHICAGO – Like the awesome Engine Who Could, the mighty Nothing Without a Company stage crafters have constructed another triumph at their new home in Berger Mansion on Chicago’s north side. “The Kid Thing” – written by Sarah Gubbins – is a terse, convincing and emotional play about fear, identity and breeding, and it is performed by its cast of five with utter authenticity. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Berger North Mansion through April 15th, 2017. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
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.
