My Wife and Baby Momma – the play

There is a new play coming, penned by La Savine Givens. The title is … you guess it, “My Wife and Baby Momma” The play will take place on April 23rd and 24th at the Kenwood Theater. Take a look at the trailer (not here) it looks like a very interesting play. As the title might indicate, emotions run high in this one. I have taken the liberty to shoot and post a few rehearsal shots of the cast¬†here.


Tammy McCann rocks hyde park

Chicago native and jazz vocalist Tammy McCann performed at the Hyde Park Union Church. Tammy has a superb voice which has all the clarity of a bell. I found her to be very personable on stage, a consummate professional. Her musicians backed her up very well as she paid tribute to female vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald and Betty Carter. Very nice performance indeed.

Maggie Brown comes to Sherman Park

Talented songstress Maggie Brown came to Sherman Park for a concert in which she payed tribute to Jazz legend Abbey Lincoln. Maggie is the daughter of music legend Oscar Brown Jr., and in terms of musical talent, this apple did not fall far from the tree! She put on a wonderful show, and this native Chicagoan proved once again that we got talent here.
