Last night the heaven's opened the flood gates and it rained as if a hurricane was upon us in Miami, Florida. I have never seen so many lightning bolts nor that much flooding on I-95. Although not many people braved the storm, I was proud to be among the few that came to watch the Adrienne Arsht Center and The House Theatre of Chicago's UNITED FLIGHT 232. In one word, exquisite. The storytelling was incredibly inspired. I have a brand new appreciation and love for documentary style theatre. In the intimate Carnival Studio Theatre, it was hard not to hear the very visceral response the audience was having. As tears ran down my face, I could hear the muffled sounds of crying as the remarkable cast told the true story of fatal United Flight 232. It's adapted for the stage from the critically acclaimed book, Flight 232: A Story of Disaster and Survival by Laurence Gonzales.

Using several of your favorite hits from the 1970s, cleverly strewn together, Disaster: the Musical is an homage to the wonderfully, awful disaster movies of the decade. What begins as a celebratory night at the grand opening of a floating casino and discotheque, quickly turns to...well...disaster as the passengers dodge earthquake, inferno, tidal wave, shark attack, diabetes, out of tune guitars, piranhas and more! Though the title may suggest it, The Pollard Theatre's production is far from a disaster.

'If you're looking for one word to sum up the music of Ordinary Elephant, the title of their new album will do you,' said For Folk's Sake. 'Honest. Honest in its tradition, honest in its sentiment, honest in its sound. 'Jenny & James' fits right in as it pays tribute to an interracial couple who fought back against hatred and discrimination to stay true to their feelings for one another. This is a song about love, sung with love.' “Love can enable people to overcome boundaries arbitrarily set by others,” Ordinary Elephant explained. “We can learn from their strength.” The moral of the story? Love wins.
