Kathryn Hahn is a Mom Gone Wild in ‘A Bad Moms Christmas.’

CHICAGO – The holiday season officially kicks off on November 1st, 2017, with the early present of “A Bad Moms Christmas.” This sequel to the popular “Bad Moms” of last year is decorated with tinsel and has more badness, much of that generated from the stars of the first film… Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn. Joining these Bad Moms are three iconic actresses portraying their mothers… Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon. Every major cast member except Baranski came to Chicago last week to promote the film.

Last year’s “Bad Moms” was a surprise huge hit, essentially featuring stressed out mothers lashing out against the mendacity of their workaday domestic sameness. The sequel came naturally, as Christmas is a time for more stress, always in an attempt to create perfection. Susan Sarandon, Cheryl Hines, Kathryn Hahn, Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis took questions from Midwest journalists at a round table last week, including Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com.

In the first audio clip, Susan Sarandon talks about working in a film starring women, the relationship between mothers and daughters, and a bit about the Harvey Weinstein situation.

In clip number two, Cheryl Hines observes how similar her “Bad Moms” character is to her mother, and how women easily can become their mothers when raising kids of their own.

In clip three, Kathryn Hahn was ecstatic about working with Susan Sarandon, and how “A Bad Moms Christmas” is an inclusive film.

In clip four, Kirsten Bell talks about motherhood and expectations, and how all the “Bad Moms” shared their experiences.

And in clip number five, Mila Kunis has perspective on her experiences when she first came to America and a summary on Harvey Weinstein.

  • Speech & Debate (stage play)

    CHICAGO – “Speech & Debate,” the latest production from the mighty Brown Paper Box Company, continues their tradition of thinking outside that “box” in presenting storefront theater that makes a statement and a difference. “Speech” goes inside America by showcasing the outsiders… those who create art because they can’t get it right in real life. This non-equity Chicago stage play premiere is finely tuned and wonderfully acted, and runs through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • We're Gonna Be Okay

    CHICAGO – The 1960s were a time of historical social transition. The movements – civil rights, feminist, gay rights – all had roots in that tumultuous decade. The Chicago premiere of Basil Kreimendahl’s “We’re Gonna Be Okay” echoes all of those movements in its characters, and collides them against the October 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the American Theater Company through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
