Nightclub singer Doris Brack (Teresa Veramendi) prepares to demonstrate her cosmetic talents on police stenographer Marion (Rebecca Flores) in my film noir-styled FROZEN FIRE, coming THIS WEEKEND to the City Lit Theatre Art of Adaptation Festival! Friday the 13th at 7:30pm and Sunday the 15th at 2:00pm are the two only performances, at City Lit Theatre, 1020 West Bryn Mawr Avenue in Chicago. Tickets are available here, but be warned, they're going fast: see the electrifying work of director Amy C. Buckler and a phenomenal cast giving their all in this story of sin, sex and murder in 1940s Chicago. What's that, you say you're not in the mood for darkness, seduction and scandal? Well, you're in luck, for I'm directing the heartfelt and hilarious Pachelbel by the lovely playwright Laura Nessler, a piece about a doomed but inspired romance in a string quartet starring Ellen Chambers and featuring Miss Nessler herself on cello: fortunately for you Chicago theatre lovers, Pachelbel is running the same nights as Frozen Fire, and only at City Lit Theatre! See you there!
