Mona MansourTheatre

The Way West

Village Theatre

Friday, May 15, through Sunday, May 24

 

The final production in New Ground Theatre’s 2014-15 season is author Mona Mansour’s The Way West, which runs at the Village Theatre May 15 through 24. The Chicago Tribute wrote that Mansour’s 2013 play “captures how fast technology reveals the skeletons in our closet.” The Windy City Times called it an exploration of how “poor judgment can squander millions in stocks or pennies in a jam jar.”

New Ground director Christina Myatt, however, has her own description: “Family dysfunction, old boyfriends, bad business schemes, financial distress ... . You know, a lot of comedy.” And she’s not being sarcastic.

Radisson Quad City Plaza

Thursday, May 7, 5:30 p.m.

 

The Women’s Connection’s 11th-Annual “Celebrate a Special Woman” Signature Event will take place at Davenport’s Radisson Quad City Plaza on May 7, and the celebration’s featured speaker is actress and comedienne Erin Foley. At the Internet Movie Database, you’ll notice that Foley’s first film credit was Cameron Crowe’s Oscar-winning Almost Famous, in which she played “Alison the Fact Checker.” With 15 years having now passed, Crowe could easily cast Foley as the lead in that movie’s sequel – so long as its title found Crowe ditching the “Almost.”

Saturday, April 18, 9 p.m.

 

If you’re blue and you don’t know where to go to, why don’t you go to RIBCO? It’s ... puttin’ on the Rittz!

That intro’s probably more clever if you sing it in rhythm to the Fred Astaire song. Please don’t make me tell you which one.

The Redstone Room

Wednesday, April 15, 7:30 p.m.

 

Davenport’s Redstone Room will host a very special concert event on April 15, and I know what you’re thinking: Ugh – April 15. That annual day of dread, knowing the obligation you have to attend to before midnight that, as usual, you’re almost criminally – perhaps literally criminally – unprepared for.

I’m referring, of course, to April 15 being my dad’s birthday. How does this date keep sneaking up on me? I mean, I had a whole year to pick out the perfect tie!

Happily, though, this year’s April 15 will be made much sweeter via the Redstone Room concert with songwriting chanteuse Liz Longley, whose album-release tour makes a local stop in support of her new, self-titled offering.
