  2. South-side baker Stephanie Hart is a new Food Network starRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Nov 4 | Chicago Reader

    My first thought on meeting Stephanie Hart at her Grand Crossing cake shop, Brown Sugar Bakery , was that if I was casting a reality TV show, I'd put her on TV, no question. This wasn't a random thought, because she actually is going to be on TV-you can see her starting Sunday on the Food Network's Holiday Baking Championship , hosted by Bobby Deen.

  3. Il Trovatore brings Amber Wagner back to townRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Oct 29 | Chicago Reader

    Won't the developmental years she spent at Lyric Opera's Ryan Opera Center allow us a few boasting rights? It was clear from the first time Lyric put her on a Chicago stage that Wagner has that rarity , a voice that's not just excellent but-in its power and unique timbre-actually thrilling over most of its range. That voice, like a searchlight in a room full of candles, is magnificently on display in Lyric Opera's current production of Giuseppi Verdi's Il Trovatore , in which Wagner's been cast as the opera's doomed love interest, Leonora.

  5. The ceviche mixto at Logan Square's Ceviche lights up the nightRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Oct 29 | Chicago Reader

    I was right chuffed when I read the menu description for the ceviche mixto at Logan Square's aptly named Ceviche, a new Peruvian restaurant from the folks behind the well-established and well-liked Ay Ay Picante . Not only are the actual menus from Ay Ay Picante itself employed here, but the classic dish is said to be composed of a "variety of seafood and tilapia," as if the proprietors recognize that tofu with fins , as the Houston Chronicle once put it, doesn't really count as seafood.

    Wednesday Oct 29 | Chicago Reader

    If, in a year or two, you want to brag that you were among the first people to see the Goodman's new production-and if you don't want to pay for a night at the theater-you should most definitely check out the New Stages Festival , which opens tonight and runs through November 16. The festival, now in its eleventh year, features six new works, three as staged readings, three as full productions, and functions as the Goodman's farm system: since its inception in 2004, about a third of the plays featured in New Stages have gone on to productions on the Goodman's main stages, including the recent Smokefall and The World of Extreme Happiness , last season's Buzzer and Ask Aunt Susan , next spring's The Upstairs Concierge , and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Ruined .
