In just over a week, the Cubs will play a one-off wild card game against the Pirates. We talk with listeners about whether they're keeping their enthusiasm in check or letting it all hang out. We also speak with the producer of a new documentary about the Black Panther Party. And we have a conversation with longtime Chicago stage actor Mike Nussbaum.
Robert Sickinger came to Chicago in 1963 as director of Hull House theater on Chicago’s north side. But in six short years, he gave the city a new style of theater: grassroots, adventurous, and in the neighborhood.
Iconic Chicago actor Mike Nussbaum has put on his traveling shoes for a rare trip out-of-town. He's playing Solomon Galkin in Imagining Madoff, a controversial play by Deborah Margolin presented at Theater J in Washington, DC, where former-Chicagoan Ari Roth is artistic director.
