CHICAGO – When faced with adversity, the best way around it is to somehow break into song. That is the feeling behind the Brown Paper Box Co.’s “Positively Present: An Uplifting Cabaret,” running April 7th and 8th at Mary’s Attic in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood. The event features company member Kristi Szczepanek as host, and presents song stylings by other company members, including Anna Schutz, plus some special guests.

I was informed on Wednesday that Walden Media and Fox Walden are vying to break the Guiness World Record for the largest toy drive. They intend to amass 12,000 pounds of toys from Nov. 6 to 12.
