I spent 8 weeks in Chicago at the end of the year 2014 working as the script consultant/dramaturg on a brand new musical called “Dee Snider’s Rock N Roll Christmas Tale.” Dee is the writer of the show and also starred in it. He was fantastic to work with. The lead producer, John Yonover, assembled a great cast and crew which made the experience that much better. And Chicago, what can I say? I fell in love with the city. It’s a city full of really nice people who love great food and booze. And the architecture is second to none (sorry New York). A full restaurant/bar recap will be coming… when I have time to type it up. I think it is safe to say I sampled a very wide cross section of the neighborhood where I had an apartment – River North – and even hit a few other incredible spots around the city. I look forward to putting one of my shows up there one day!
