Salonathon @ Steppenwolf: SAY MY NAME

Hosted and curated by Jane Beachy

With DJ Swaguerrilla

Salonathon, created and curated by Jane Beachy, is a home for underground, emerging and genre-defying works. It seeks to cultivate and showcase boundary-pushing creative acts that have no natural landing place in a fun, inclusive, rigorous atmosphere. Salonathon has run as a weekly series on Monday nights at Beauty Bar in Chicago since July 2011. In addition, Salonathon presents, produces and curates in larger venues for one-off events and short-form series (ie: Metro, Steppenwolf Theatre, Logan Square Auditorium, Chicago Reader/Empty Bottle Presents events). Notable artists include Big Dipper, BAATHHAUS, Ike Holter, Manual Cinema, The Fly Honeys and hundreds of others. Guest hosts and curators include Kelly Kerwin, Joe Varisco and Will Von Vogt. Swaguerrilla is Salonathon's house DJ.

Duo: 1 Is 1, 2 Is Math. A Play With Music

Book & Lyrics by Bill C. Thomas

Music by Elizabeth Doyle

Directed by ensemble member Robert Breuler

Featuring Suzanne Petri as She and Roger Anderson as He

Duo: 1 Is 1, 2 Is Math is the I Do! I Do! for the new century. The story follows a couple (Petri and Anderson) from their first meeting through their marriage and the ups and downs of their relationship as they move through their life together, growing, moving, changing, through difficult times and life's lessons until they discover "Why We Stuck." They are funny and moving and human. This sophisticated yet approachable play by Bill C. Thomas and directed by Steppenwolf ensemble member Robert Breuler, is filled with new and affecting music composed by Elizabeth Doyle. Duo is a new work that appeals to everyone from the young couples starting out to couples that are in the middle years-the difficult time in a relationship that is everyday yet long lasting. The story comes alive with insight, intelligence and wit.
