NAPERVILLE, Ill. – A Golden Globe winner and one of Time magazine’s most influential people of 2011, “Glee” star and new author Chris Colfer poses for a HollywoodChicago.com close-up before his sold-out book signing on July 19, 2012 at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, Ill.

Fans from as far away as Canada swarmed to meet their idol for three days of book-signing events to promote his first novel and children’s book “The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell”.

As for his fashion-forward “Glee” character Kurt Hummel, Colfer will be teamed up with one of his real-life idols, Sarah Jessica Parker, as she joins the cast in season four. Parker plays a Vogue journalist interacting with both Kurt and the Rachel Berry character (Lea Michele). The episode premieres on Sept. 13, 2012 on Fox.

Colfer also made Chicagoland appearances at the Old Orchard Barnes & Noble in Skokie Ill. on July 20, 2012 as well as Barbara’s Bookstore at Macy’s in Chicago on July 21, 2012 to frenzied crowds.

  • 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.
