Curb S8

CHICAGO – There was little on television in 2011 that was funnier than the razor sharp eighth season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” recently released by HBO Home Video in a 2-disc DVD set. The set is light on special features and stupidly not available on Blu-ray but the show itself is spectacular.

  • Black White Love Play

    CHICAGO – The love story of a prominent Chicago celebrity couple becomes the basis for a metaphoric and tuneful celebration about courage and coming together. “The Black White Love Play: The Story of Chaz & Roger Ebert” – written and directed by Black Ensemble Theater’s Jackie Taylor – portrays the film critic and the civil rights lawyer in their time, but also creates an atmosphere of emotion through song, sorrow and jubilation.
