CHICAGO – Next year will mark the 50th Anniversary of the seminal 1960s sitcom, “I Dream of Jeannie.” Unforgettable – for many reasons – was Barbara Eden, who portrayed a genie named Jeannie. Ms. Eden was at the “Hollywood Show” Chicago last year, and was interviewed by HollywoodChicago.com.
CHICAGO – Suzanne LaRusch knows that it takes more than novelty to tell a good story. Or in the comedienne’s case, more than a healthy wollop of Vitameatavegamin.
