ChiIL Mama's Chi, IL Picks List

The 92nd Annual Waa-Mu Show

“Romance en Route”

April 28 - May 7


By Bonnie Kenaz-Mara

Love is love is love, especially in the romantic city of Paris. We adore this playful, inclusive, romantic comedy musical. The matches, misses, breakups and hook ups are heartfelt and hopeful. The talent pool is deep, from the writing and score, to cast and crew. 

Don't miss this impressive student devised piece. Check out the full digital program HERE. 

Bonnie is a Chicago based writer, theatre critic, photographer, artist, and Mama to 2 amazing adults. She owns two websites where she publishes frequently: (adult) & (family friendly). 

“Romance en Route” follows six romantics on a journey through love, loss, heartbreak, and self-discovery in the City of Lights. By a chance of fate, Eve and Xander sit next to each other on their flight from Chicago to Paris. Meanwhile, their significant others, Lexi and Jenna, are in Paris competing for a high-stakes promotion. Alongside Tristan, a flight attendant with his head in the clouds, and Matthieu, a hotel concierge and part-time cynic, the two couples meet and are forced to confront fears, doubts, and unavoidable conversations. Will they find themselves—and the love they deserve—before they return home?
