Broke Hearts Variety Show

February 8, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Broke Hearts Variety Show, and it’s a new take on the old-fashioned variety show concept. Different performers will each be presenting their interpretation of a single theme: heartbreak. There will be a band improvising a live soundtrack to the entire night, tying all these disparate performances together.

Cleanse your palate the weekend before Valentine’s Day with some good old-fashioned heartbreak, as Chicago’s saddest writers, singers, and actors drink cheap champagne and perform their briefest, most grief-stricken pieces about broken hearts.

–Brian Bouldrey: professor at Northwestern University, author of HONORABLE BANDIT, WRESTLING WITH THE ANGEL, MONSTER: ADVENTURES IN AMERICAN MACHISMO, and more.
–Dakota Michael Loesch: actor/writer/director of KISS LIKE BIG DOGS, a web series selected by Chicago Filmmakers to screen every Friday in February as part of their Friday Night VOLUME series.
–Writers from Indiana University’s nationally-aclaimed MFA program
and more…
Also: weekend before Valentine’s Day, theme of heartbreak as palate cleanser before all that romance…
