Melinda Buckley,"Mother and Me" is a definite Go see>> Greenhouse Theater,Chicago,IL

I'd never been to the Greenhouse Theater in Chicago but when I received the press release Written and performed by Melinda Buckley,
for,"Mother And Me" and having a night off,I thought I'd talk my best friend into tagging along with me.
a larger-than-life Hungarian “Mama Rose” is slowing slipping into dementia as her Broadway baby, Melinda slips into “de’middle age.” A brilliantly funny and touching story of two women who are losing everything they’ve ever been—in very different ways—as they lose each other. Who’s it harder for? The one who can’t remember? …Or the one who can’t forget? This one-woman tour-de-force by Broadway performer and comedian Melinda Buckley was an award-winner at the 2014 New York International Fringe Festival.

Don’t miss this deeply moving and hilarious story that everyone can relate to of a “maturing” mother/daughter duo, and the uncontrollable twists and turns they attempt to navigate in a new chapter of life.



I really enjoyed this one woman performance and as a caretaker for my own mother,could completely relate.The show runs thru August 14 2016.


Can't wait to return to this gem of a theater in Lincoln Park for their upcoming shows!
