Directed by Ann Shanahan, House of Bernada Alba follows the life of a Spanish mother and her five daughters. Life, lust, and loss all wrapped into one will play out on the stage of the Newhart Family Theatre starting November 14. Ms. Shanahan gave Loyola’s DFPA an exclusive look into the work this all-female cast has put in over the past few weeks, and these photos truly tell their story.
Written by Federico García Lorca, Shanahan raves that, “the more we work on it, the more depth, precision, and genius I see in it.” If you are interested in a sneak-peek of the production, check out our Flickr page! If photography is not your thing, no worries! We would love to see you in person at the Newhart Family Theatre opening night.

Ever visited Lincoln Park’s famous Insomnia cookies? They’re rumored to be heavenly good and speaking from personal experience, I can confirm that the rumor is indeed true. North of Lincoln Park is another great place called Uptown and on Sundays at 7 PM, they have poetry slams every weekend for just $6! They have an open mic, specials guests, and even an end of the night competition. This is definitely something to check out!

I double dare you to check this out. The ComedySportz Theatre hosts the game show, Improvised Double Dare. While ’90s kids probably know exactly what I’m talking about, Improvised Double Dare pins two teams against each other as they race to compete in tests of trivia, physical challenges and of course, improvisation. Piggy backing off the Nickelodeon game show, this interactive and fast-paced show includes lots of laughs, challenges and as always, slime. Double Dare preforms every Sunday night at 7PM at ComedySportz Theatre. Ticket are $5 and can be bought here.
