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.

  • Cher Show, The

    CHICAGO – Cherilyn Sarkisian… yes, that is her birth name… is the redoubtable Cher, and it’s perfect timing for her to have a jukebox musical tribute. “The Cher Show,” covering three eras/songs of the six-decade career of Cher, opens for a Chicago preview before its Broadway run, from June 12th through July 25th, 2018.

  • ThroatPunch

    CHICAGO – The provocative title of Sharon Krome’s new stage play, “ThroatPunch,” does not contain that particular fight technique. But it does have standout performances by the three person cast, as they make their way in Chicago, circa 1983, amid their emerging twentysomething punk rock attitude. The World Premiere of the show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through June 3rd, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
