The LIVINGroom, an ensemble of solo writer/performers including several alumni of the Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department, marks Mother’s Day with The LIVINGroom: Throwback (Stories Our Moms Love), an evening of one-person performance pieces. The performers include Columbia alumni Carly Jo Geer (BA ’13), Emily Nikfar (BA ’13), Abigail Phelps (BA ’15), Ian Randall (BFA ’06), and Anna Wolfe (BA ’15), all graduates of the Theatre Department’s acting program. The show is directed by Ian Randall.
The show takes place Sunday, May 8, at 8 PM at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont, in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. Tickets are $10; student tickets are only $7 the night of the show at the box office with a student ID. For tickets, call 773-327-5252 or click here.
The program includes “stories that will bring a smile or just a little bit of maternal concern to your mother’s face this Mother’s Day,” according to event’s Facebook page. “These are stories mothers–and everyone–will love: being together as the fates allow, finding your creative force with a little glam, going back to the egg–and let’s not forget that once-secret, lucrative side business that happened in middle school.”
The LIVINGroom is a theatrical assembly of individual, autobiographical performances that blend spoken word, movement, spectacle, music, and any other device that bridges the personal and the universal. Performers in The LIVINGroom engage the audience in as many points of the performance as possible, blurring the line between spectator and stage in order to find commonality with each other.
