TRUE “Why work hard to get something when you know you can get it an easier way.”

False everyone given a chance can change no matter who they are or who they were!

Once a crook?

People can change - although not everyone.

Times change, people don't

You can’t really ever change your past, so if at one time you ever were a crook you technically will always have that. I think a person can stop doing the actions, but it is very hard and very unlikely for most people. It takes more than just the individual.

Once a crook, always a crook is...

sometimes false. It all depends on whether or not the crook had something that made him-or-her decide to change.

Rehabbed crook?

In the case of Gekko, I doubt anything will truly change him. Still, within the boundaries of a fictional setting, you gotta love a character like him. In the real world, it would seem some people benefit from being caught and rehabbed to use their deceptions for the common good. After all, that was the point of the real Frank Abagnale, Jr.’s story (depicted in Spielberg’s biopic, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN). He was caught and paradoxically, the forgery skills that got him busted now have him working as one of the top anti-forgery experts.

A Leopard Does Not Change Its Spots

In my experience, true. A person’s character does not change.

False. I believe people can

False. I believe people can change but they have to want to change. Usually something drastic will occur that will cause someone to change in a blink of an eye. Yes, it is hard for someone to break bad habits but anything is possible for those who believe! :)

False..I hope

I’m guessing it’s true in most cases but I’m hoping it’s false at least once in a while. I’d like to think some people do not stay the idiots they were in their youth.

True - there is power in being able to take advantage of others, and power is quite addicting.

  • Speech & Debate (stage play)

    CHICAGO – “Speech & Debate,” the latest production from the mighty Brown Paper Box Company, continues their tradition of thinking outside that “box” in presenting storefront theater that makes a statement and a difference. “Speech” goes inside America by showcasing the outsiders… those who create art because they can’t get it right in real life. This non-equity Chicago stage play premiere is finely tuned and wonderfully acted, and runs through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • We're Gonna Be Okay

    CHICAGO – The 1960s were a time of historical social transition. The movements – civil rights, feminist, gay rights – all had roots in that tumultuous decade. The Chicago premiere of Basil Kreimendahl’s “We’re Gonna Be Okay” echoes all of those movements in its characters, and collides them against the October 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the American Theater Company through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
