The Brown Paper Box Co. theater ensemble takes us back to those thrilling days of yesteryear with “Spike Heels,” a relationship comedy centering on the co-mingling antics of two couples, with a slight nod toward George Bernard Shaw and the play “Pygmalion” (or its musical counterpart, “My Fair Lady”).
CHICAGO – Whenever we hear the term “Slacker,” it does harken back to a certain movie called “Back to the Future.” And the actor that interpreted that famous invective is none other than veteran actor James Tolkan, portraying Principal Strickland.
CHICAGO – Everybody’s favorite 1950s Mom – besting June Cleaver by a mile – is Lorraine from “Back to the Future.” And who was the embodiment of that class act? Lea Thompson, who met admirers at the Hollywood Blvd Cinema in Woodridge, IL, last weekend.
