I explain that it’s part of a health research study I’m participating in through the Women’s Health Research Institute at Northwestern University. The next question is always, “Why would […]

As soon as I read that Dave Barry co-authored Peter and the Starcatcher, my expectations grew. I’ve adored Barry’s sense of humor for years now and the chance to see it come to life set a high bar. Peter and the Starcatcher sounds like a story for kids, and there are elements that tie the […]

The multi-layered performances let […]
