SUNSHINE CLEANING” – Illuminating the lives of a dysfunctional family =
Rating: 8 of 10 stars.

Rose (AMY ADAMS) is an unmarried mother of a trouble-causing 8-year-old son (JASON SPEVACK), & she regularly shacks up with a married Albuquerque cop named Mac (STEVE ZAHN). Mac gives her an idea for a money-making new job, & she recruits her flaky do-nothing younger sister Norah (EMILY BLUNT) to help start ‘Sunshine Cleaning’ to do the often-unpleasant work of tidying up after crime scenes. It turns out that’s an ironic job (given the history of her family). Their father (ALAN ARKIN) is a guy always looking for some easy new (often semi-“shady”) way to try to earn money for himself. The movie chronicles the other people they meet along the “way” of trying to move somewhat forward in life (including supply-shop owner CLIFTON COLLINS JR.), & the trials and tribulations encountered in their often-rocky paths. It’s not really a comedy, but it’s a well-acted, fascinatingly “off-kilter” and effective tale.

  • It's NOT ALL About You John Michael

    CHICAGO – John Michael epitomizes the art of the monologue. The Chicago transplant, by way of Dallas, is moving on (he says temporarily) from the city that inspired his last show, “Meatball Seance,” after notorious and successful runs of his other one-man shows, “John Michael and the Order of the Penix” and “Dementia Me.” His farewell performance is his latest, another laugh riot, “It’s NOT ALL About You John Michael,” and will take place at Mary’s Attic in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood on March 1st, 2019.

  • Soccer Player in the Closet, The 2

    CHICAGO – Connecting to the theater collective Nothing Without a Company means a couple of things. One, you may visit parts of Chicago you’ve never seen before – in this case a plant store in an industrial area south of Humboldt Park – and two, you will see some daring and outside-the-box stagings. “The Soccer Player in the Closet” is their latest production – a World Premiere – and it provides what the title implies and beyond. The play runs through March 17th, 2019. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
