The American Theater Company (ATC) have gathered these stories for the poignant and extraordinary “The Projects.”

CHICAGO – The Original Mother’s in Chicago lit up on July 28, 2011 when soulful rocker Lauren Wolf and her electrifying band held the CD release party for “All My Secrets”. Wolf’s rock/blues sound can be compared to the likes of Janis Joplin, Joss Stone and Heart wrapped into one.
The album was recorded at Capitol Studios with a Grammy-winning producer after Wolf won Chicago’s Road to Fame competition in 2009. Wolf’s band includes Graham Czach (bass), Jesse Nolan (drums/vocals), Patrick Dugan (guitar) and Phil Maniaci (keys/vocals).
