Here is the plot description for “Up in the Air”:

From Jason Reitman (the Oscar-nominated director of “Juno”) comes “Up in the Air”: the timely odyssey of Ryan Bingham (Oscar winner George Clooney). He’s a corporate downsizer and consummate modern business traveler who, after years of staying happily airborne, suddenly finds himself ready to make a real connection.

Ryan has long been contented with his unencumbered lifestyle lived out across America in airports, hotels and rental cars. He can carry all he needs in one wheel-away case. He’s a pampered, elite member of every travel loyalty program in existence. He’s close to attaining his lifetime goal of 10 million frequent-flier miles. Still, Ryan has nothing real to hold onto.

When he falls for a simpatico fellow traveler (Vera Farmiga), Ryan’s boss (Jason Bateman) – who is inspired by a young and upstart efficiency expert (Anna Kendrick) – threatens to permanently call him in from the road. Faced with the prospect (both terrifying and exhilarating) of being grounded, Ryan begins to contemplate what it might actually mean to have a home.

The movie trailer for “Up in the Air” can be viewed now below.

  • 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.
