"Distracted": A Provocative Play About Modern Families and the Culture of Medicating
at Prop Thtr, Chicago

Is nine-year-old Jesse dysfunctional or just different?

Quirky and theatrically irreverent, "Distracted" does a stellar job of creating a confusing world, and even occasionally has the actors break character for comic effect.

Hot Gypsy Jazz From the Alfonso Ponticelli Trio
at Winter's Jazz Club , Chicago

Made famous by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli's Quintette du Hot Club de France, gypsy jazz has enchanted listeners ever since with its up-tempo swing rhythms tinged with Old World folk flavor. The result, heard on songs like "Minor Swing," "Nuages" and "Limehouse Blues," is an infectious sound that is impossible not to get swept up in. Keeping this tradition alive in Chicago is multi-instrumentalist Alfonso Ponticelli and his trio. A multiple award winner, Ponticelli has shared the stage with the legendary Les Paul, played both banjo and guitar with the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra, and collaborated with a slew of Arabic, Celtic, bluegrass and other traditional folk ensembles. The "Chicago Tribune" called Ponticelli's take on gypsy jazz "bracingly fresh and contemporary." Don't miss this swingin' time at Winter's Jazz Club.
