A high-powered consultant in love with her upscale Miami lifestyle is sent to a middle-of-nowhere town in Minnesota to oversee the restructuring of a-blue collar manufacturing plant.

After enduring a frosty reception from the locals, icy roads and freezing weather, she warms up to the small town’s charm and eventually finds herself being accepted by the community.

When she’s ordered to close down the plant and put the entire community out of work, she’s forced to reconsider her goals and priorities and finds a way to save the town.

  • Jesus Christ Superstar, Lyric Opera

    CHICAGO – As a wee lad, I would often go into my parent’s record collection. One day, out of the blue, that brown double album with the gold embossed angels appeared, like a gift from the divine. “Jesus Christ Superstar” began as a record album “rock opera” in 1970, evolved to a Broadway show and film, and then was interpreted through a myriad of stage revivals over the years. The latest is an exciting piece of stagecraft at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. The show has a various evening/matinee run through May 20th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
