Here is the plot description for “Viva Riva!”:

“Viva Riva!” is an action-filled neo-noir about a Kinasha hood who’s plunged into a brutal world of revenge, lust and violence. Riva (Patsha Bay Mukuna) is a small-time operator who has just returned to his hometown of Kinshasa, Congo after a decade away with a major score: a fortune in hijacked gasoline.

A man with charm and ambition in equal measure – along with wads of cash in his enthusiastic hands – Riva is soon entranced by beautiful night club denizen Nora (Manie Malone). She’s the kept woman of local gangster Azor (Diplome Amekindra) and he’s keeping his eye on Riva and his money.

Into the mix comes the Angolan crime lord Cesar (Hoji Fortuna). He’s hungry for revenge as he relentlessly seeks the return of his stolen shipment of gasoline. Kinshasa’s lawless and steamy environs get even hotter as everyone sets out to snatch whatever it is they want despite the consequences.

  • 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. Click here for details, including ticket information.

  • 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.
