Here is the plot description for “Romantics Anonymous” from the Tribeca Film Festival:

This delectable comedy tells the story of Angélique (Isabelle Carré): a gifted chocolate maker with a lifelong case of uncontrollable shyness. Jean-René (Benoît Poelvoorde) suffers from a similar case of terminal abashment and runs a fledgling chocolate company in desperate need of a new direction. When the two nervous Nellies meet, they are forced to fess up to their sweet affections for each other.

  • Jesus Christ Superstar, Lyric Opera

    CHICAGO – As a wee lad, I would often go into my parent’s record collection. One day, out of the blue, that brown double album with the gold embossed angels appeared, like a gift from the divine. “Jesus Christ Superstar” began as a record album “rock opera” in 1970, evolved to a Broadway show and film, and then was interpreted through a myriad of stage revivals over the years. The latest is an exciting piece of stagecraft at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. The show has a various evening/matinee run through May 20th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
