Timon of Athens
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Barbara Gaines

ChiIL Live Shows will be there for opening night of Timon of Athens tonight at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre.   We can't wait to see renowned actor, Ian McDiarmid in the lead.   Check back with ChiIL Live Shows like we vote in Chi, IL...early and often.   We'll have a full review up shortly. 

In a high-risk world of quick profits and borrowed luxury, Timon is a god among men. But can this titan survive when the tides of fortune turn? From performances with the Royal Shakespeare Company and on Broadway to the Star Wars film series and beyond, internationally celebrated actor Ian McDiarmid is brilliantly matched to the challenging role of Timon. And Artistic Director Barbara Gaines' gripping new production features the kind of inventive staging and electrifying performances that always makes an evening at Chicago Shakespeare one to remember—book your tickets today! Approximate Running Time: 2 hours, 10 minutes  


Marla Rose (vegan agitator, author, and local mother to young son, Justice, speaks at Women & Children First in Andersonville at 7:30pm)    Marla's quite a character and a long time friend of ours.   She's recently written a new book, The Adventures of Vivian Sharpe, Vegan Superhero which we'll be reviewing soon at   


Tonight she's on with Geeta Maker-Clark, reading from This I Believe on Motherhood. This I Believe: On Motherhood This I Believe, Inc. An offshoot of the popular public radio series This I Believe, This I Believe: On Motherhood is an inspirational compilation of original essays, offering the insight and wisdom of sixty contributors—celebrated and unknown—exploring what is arguably the most complex of all human relationships: that between a mother and her children. Two local contributors, Geeta Maker-Clark and Marla Rose, will share their stories from a collection that would make a wonderful gift for all mothers and mothers-to-be.
