Whether consciously or not, most of us have engaged in a phenomenon of social interaction popularly known as “code-switching.” As Smart People examines issues of privilege, implicit bias and miscommunication, this event seeks to define “code-switching” and decode the subtle shifts in how we perceive others and how we choose to present ourselves and communicate.

WRITERS THEATRE PLAY READING SERIES 

Vérité

Written by Nick Jones
Directed by Brian Balcom

Monday, April 30th at 7:00pm
The Gillian Theatre, 325 Tudor Court, Glencoe


Featuring: Nathan Hosner*, Darci Nalepa*, Cristina Panfilio*, Vincent Teninty*
 and Zachary Uzarraga with additional casting TBA.

ABOUT THE PLAY

Struggling writer Jo has been given the opportunity of a lifetime to write her own memoir. The only catch is that her publishers explicitly ask that she only write about her life truly, and that it be as exciting as possible. As mysterious and even sinister events start happening to her, Jo has to decide how far she is willing to go to make her life into art, and whether it’s all coincidence or if someone is determined to make sure her memoir is a best-seller at any cost. The play had its world premiere at Lincoln Center Theater in 2015.

COUNTRY LEGENDS JOHNNY LEE AND MICKEY GILLEY ANNOUNCE “URBAN COWBOY REUNION TOUR”



COUNTRY LEGENDS JOHNNY LEE AND MICKEY GILLEY ANNOUNCE “URBAN COWBOY REUNION TOUR”
https://us.vocuspr.com/Publish/517823/vcsPRAsset_517823_114123_9ed9e846-6ff5-40e8-a1e4-224a70951e6e_0.jpg

Country legends Johnny Lee and Mickey Gilley have joined forces to co-headline the “Urban Cowboy Reunion Tour” which kicked off January 26. The two friends have reunited for a series of live concert dates throughout 2018. The tour kicked off in Stafford, Texas, and will visit cities all across the country, including Nevada, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Louisiana and Pennsylvania. After working together for over 50 years, Gilley and Lee have a friendship and stage chemistry that goes unmatched. The duo can be seen throughout the year in their hometown of Branson, Mo., at Mickey Gilley’s Shanghai Theater.

The tour reunites two of the stars of the 1980 iconic "Urban Cowboy" film. The movie depicts a young man, played by John Travolta, who learns about life and love in a Houston bar called “Gilley’s,” which was a real-life honky-tonk owned and operated by Gilley himself and still exists today in multiple cities. This country classic played an integral role in the careers of both Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee, among other artists, catapulting them and their music into the spotlight.

“I'm really, really happy about going out on the road with my good friend Mickey Gilley and doing the 'Urban Cowboy Reunion Tour',” says Lee. “We go back a long time, and it is fun sharing stories and music with the fans. This tour is long overdue, and it is gonna be like old times for you with my good friend- and to me that is a good thing.”

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to tour once again with my good friend. The Urban Cowboy craze kept my career alive for all of these years, and every night when I go to bed, I thank John Travolta for my amazing career. At 81, I am still rockin,” says Gilley.

About Johnny Lee
Johnny Lee was born on July 3, 1946 in Texas City, Texas and was raised on a Dairy Farm in Alta Loma, Texas. After high school, Lee enlisted in the Navy, serving a tour of duty on the U.S.S. Chicago in Vietnam. Immediately upon returning home, he started pursuing his music. In 1968, he began a 10 year working relationship with Mickey Gilley. Recording with ABC/DOT and GRT Records, Lee had moderate success with “Country Party.” In 1979, Lee’s first onscreen role was in the 1979 TV movie, “The Girls in the Office,” starring Barbara Eden and Susan St. James. He was then asked to perform in the film, “Urban Cowboy,” starring John Travolta and Deborah Winger, and for which he recorded several songs used in the soundtrack. “Lookin’ For Love” from that soundtrack became Lee’s first Gold Record. It spent three weeks at the top of the Billboard Country singles chart as No. 1, and No. 2 on the Pop singles chart. He followed up “Lookin’ For Love” with “One In A Million”, which spent two weeks at No. 1. In 2004, Johnny Lee was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame. Currently Johnny can be seen performing solo and together with Mickey Gilley on the Urban Cowboy Reunion tour, playing more than 40 dates across the U.S. in 2018. Keep up with all things Johnny Lee at www.theofficialjohnnylee.com

He continued to show chart success with hits like "City Lights" and "Don't The Girls All Get Prettier at Closing Time" both of which reached number one on the Billboard Country Charts. In 1980, Gilley appeared in the film “Urban Cowboy” alongside John Travolta and Johnny Lee.

Real Estate News >> Archie Bunker, Donald Trump & Robert E. Lee

 
The former homes of Carol O'Connor, Robert E. Lee & Donald Trump are for sale. The latest real estate news is featured at TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.

 
“Archie Bunker's Malibu House”
A lot different than Archie Bunker's TV home in Queens, Carol O'Connor's longtime Malibu home is for sale at a pocket-listing price about $20 million. The O'Connor family owned the home for over 30 years until it sold two years ago for $9.3 million. The new owners did a complete restoration for the beach-area home with four bedrooms, vibrant courtyard with pool, Tesla charging station and solar energy systems, but no Meathead, Edith or Gloria.
“New Florida Beach Laws for the Rich”
Based on a new Florida law, Florida luxury condos, ritzy beach hotels and mansions may soon be able to keep the riffraff off their sand.  For many years, all of Florida's beaches were open to the public, even the Palm Beach mansions that sell for $50 million and more. Beginning July 1, Florida beach lovers may not be able to get their sun tan on their favorite beaches. The beach owners will need to get a judge's order and can only restrict access to dry sand that ocean tides do not reach. About 60 percent of Florida beaches are privately owned.
“Gulden Mustard House For Sale”
A mustard-yellow home for sale in Cold Harbor, New York was once owned by the Gulden Mustard family. The 18-room home on two acres with nine bedrooms, five fireplaces, pool and pool house with harbor views was built in the mid 1800s. According to Newsday, the Gulden family owned the home in the 1950s. The asking price is $2.499 million.
“Robert E. Lee's Childhood Home”
An Alexandria, Virginia home where Confederate General Robert E. Lee lived as a child and George Washington slept overnight is for sale at $8.5 million. The six-bedroom, brick home was built in 1795 and was home to the Lee family for about 80 years beginning in 1812 when his destitute father began renting the home. Robert lived there from age 5 until he entered West Point in 1825. The 8,145-square-foot home was also the site of the Stonewall Jackson Museum from 1967 to 2000 when it was sold to a private owner who did a full restoration of the home.
“Donald Trump's First Mansion Returns”
Donald Trump was only 35 when he and Ivana purchased his starter mansion - a 5.8-acre home on a peninsula in Greenwich, Connecticut for $4 million. Ivana immediately trumped up the mansion with lots of gold leaf, elegant chandeliers and crown moldings. When they divorced in 1991, Ivana won the mansion in the property settlement and sold the home in 1998 for $15 million. The new owners have toned it down a lot and added a tennis court, indoor lap pool, sauna and a 4,000-square-foot addition with guest suites.  It's back on the market at $45 million, the same price when it was on the market in 2016 and reduced from $50 million when it was listed in 2010.
“TV's Maverick 400-Acre Ranch”
James Garner was a television and movie star for over 40 years starring in 'Maverick,' 'The Great Escape' and 'The Rockford Files.' His former 400-acre ranch in Los Olivos is for sale at $16.5 million. Garner had the 8,000-square-foot home built in the 1990s with features including a shooting range, 25-acre vineyard and separate homes for the vineyard and ranch managers.
“Dusty Springfield's London Art Deco Home”
One of the 1960's and '70's most popular British singers was Dusty Springfield. Her former London Art-Deco style home with indoor pool, roof terrace and party room is for sale asking almost $20 million.  Dusty could sing it all crossing pop, blues and jazz with hits such as 'Son of a Preacher Man,' 'The Look of Love' and 'I Only Want to Be with You.' She died in 1999.
“Margaritaville Smash Hit in Daytona Beach”
Jimmy Buffett and Minto Communities have teamed up to build a Margaritaville in Daytona Beach, Florida. Located a few miles from the ocean near I-95, Margaritaville had more than 200 parrotheads camped out overnight when sales launched in November. The 55-and-older community features single family homes, 1,500 to 2,500 square feet priced from the low $200s to mid $300s. Amenities include a Latitude Bar & Grille and shuttle service to the beach. Minto Communities is one of Florida's largest developers. 
“World's Happiest Country”
According to an annual report from the United Nations, Finland is the world's happiest country followed by Norway and Denmark. The analysis is based on several factors including income, trust and life expectancy. The United States slipped four spots to #18.
“LBJ's Texas Ranch For Sale”
One week after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, new President Lyndon B. Johnson purchased an 800-acre ranch near Johnson City, Texas. Even though his main home was a 330-acre ranch on the Pedernales River in central Texas, his new ranch was intended as a getaway that would insulate him from the press and the pressures of Washington, D.C.. Johnson's former ranch has been downsized to 142 acres and is for sale at $2.8 million.

CHICAGO CITY MARKETS PROVIDE ACCESS TO FRESH PRODUCE, CHICAGO-MADE PRODUCTS, RARE FINDS AND MORE
The market season kicks off on Thursday, May 10, at Daley Plaza featuring vendors from Maxwell Street Market and
the unveiling of the winning design of the COUNTRY Financial Reusable Bag Contest
 
The Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events is pleased to present the summer season of Chicago City Markets presented by COUNTRY Financial®. Chicago City Markets sell fresh seasonal produce, flowers, prepared foods, unique Chicago-made products and rare finds – at Chicago’s longest running farmers market on Daley Plaza, the historic Maxwell Street Market and a dozen more community markets in neighborhoods across Chicago.. A complete list of city-run markets, along with dates and times are listed below and at chicagocitymarkets.us.
 
“Chicago City Markets are farmers markets and much more,” said Mark Kelly, Commissioner of the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. “Our markets provide residents with access to fresh and healthy food – and unique Chicago-made products and other merchandise – but they also bring communities together, many offering live music and other cultural activities.”
 
The official kick-off of the Chicago City Markets summer season will take place on Thursday, May 10, at 11:30 a.m. at the City Market at Daley Plaza. Among the activities, COUNTRY Financial® will announce the winner of the 11th Annual Reusable Bag Design Contest and will distribute free, reusable bags to market goers. This year’s winning design by a local student will be based on the theme You’ve Got a Lot Growing For You. The winning student will receive a scholarship prize and appear on thousands of reusable canvas bags distributed at Chicago City Market locations. The City Market at Daley Plaza will be open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will also feature visiting vendors from the Maxwell Street Market.
 
“COUNTRY Financial is thrilled to be sponsoring our 11th annual bag design contest,” said Mike Fisher, Agency Vice President of Community Business Development at COUNTRY Financial. “It’s the best time of the year when our vendors and friends are back at the market with farm-fresh products, and we can fill up our newly designed reusable bag. It’s a special feeling.”
 
The Maxwell Street Market (800 S. Desplaines St.) is a year-round Chicago tradition of bargains and bargaining with an international flavor. The historic market, open year-round on Sundays, 7 a.m.–3 p.m, offers an eclectic mix of foods and finds—from tools to tires. It is also renowned for the best, authentic Mexican- and Latin-style street food in Chicago, with favorites that include: tamales, banana leaf wrapped tamals, tacos, quesadillas with fresh handmade corn tortillas, elotes and corn cakes. Beverage choices include soft drinks, horchatas and other fruit flavored drinks.  For the sweet tooth, market goers can enjoy sorbet, funnel cakes, baked goods and Mangonadas served in a large cup with layers of mango sorbet, mango slices, drizzled with lime, chamoy and sprinkled chili powder.For additional information, visit maxwellstreetmarket.us and follow us on Facebook at Maxwell Street Market.
 
Chicago City Markets take place in neighborhoods across the city from Lincoln Park to Roseland, downtown to Austin. Many markets serve communities with limited access to fresh produce and areas designated low-income, low-access by the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA). This year, most of the City of Chicago-managed market locations will accept LINK and will distribute double value coupons with every LINK purchase in a partnership with Experimental Station. Residents can find their neighborhood market at chicagocitymarkets.us.
 
In recognition of Chicago’s Year of Creative Youth, throughout 2018 various City Markets will host cooking demonstrations by student-chefs from Washburne Culinary & Hospitality Institute, locations and dates to be announced. Maxwell Street Market will also feature performances by youth groups at Maxwell Street Market on the second Sunday of each month. Additionally, all of the designs submitted for the 11th Annual Reusable Bag Design Contest will be on display from April 30 through May 11 in the lobby of the Daley Center (50 W. Washington St.).
