Here is the synopsis for “Sparkle”:

Detroit. 1968. The Motown sound is sweeping the nation. Girl groups are hotter than ever. Over their mother’s (Whitney Houston) objections, three beautiful sisters – Delores (Tika Sumpter), Sister (Carmen Ejogo) and Sparkle (Jordin Sparks) – are taking the local music scene by storm. But their dreams are bigger than Detroit.

Their manager, Stix (Derek Luke), is just as ambitious and will do whatever it takes to make it to the big time – even if it means using the girls and his love for Sparkle as the foundation of a new musical empire. Behind the music and lights, the recording industry is a ruthless and unforgiving place – just as Mama had warned her girls.

Sister – with her good looks and voice – is the natural headliner of the trio. Still, her complicated personal life threatens to overshadow her talent. Delores has her sights set on a different kind of life outside the spotlight. Young Sparkle must push past her deepest fears if she is to fulfill her destiny. Does she really have what it takes to go all the way?

Riveting and soul stirring, this timeless tale reminds us of the unbreakable bonds between family, the high price of fame and what can happen when we dare to show the world how brightly we can sparkle. They had a dream. She had it all.

  • 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.
