This Monday, Jeff Roscoe is playing a wonderful song called PAINTING by William Finn sung by the incredible Michael Kingston to Matt Gottlieb in Bohemian Theatre Ensemble's benefit performance of LOVE's FIRE.
The evening benefits Boho as well as Season of Concern. Michael, Matt, Jeff and I rehearsed the song again last night and it's wonderful. If you're free on Monday, join us!
Everybody and their brother is in this benefit. It wouldn't surprise me if Erin Moran is in one of the pieces...

Each of the seven one-act plays in Love's Fire offers an original and contemporary perspective on a single Shakespearean sonnet. Love and sex unite the seven short plays, which provide realistic, unusual and even wild glimpses into the choices people make in today's society.
Love’s Fire heralds the triumphs and tragedies of the heart. Using a variety of moods, settings, and stories, seven of America’s best contemporary playwrights pay tribute in a rich and marvelously entertaining celebration of the Bard.

Season of Concern is the Chicagoland theatre community’s fundraising effort in providing compassionate care to those in our community who are experiencing the effects of catastrophic illness. This effort supports the fight against AIDS, contributing to programs that provide direct-care support (funded programs provide personal financial support, housing care, meals, medications, legal assistance and a variety of other services for people living with HIV and AIDS) to members of the theatre community and others in Chicago and the Midwest; and emergency needs expressed by theatre community members in their struggles against other life-threatening illnesses.
