Upcoming Performances and Workshops



SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 2018
DrRuth
3 PM to 4:30 PM
At the home of Ruth Fuerst and Jim Block in Hyde Park
The award-winning SongShop brings you THE DR. RUTH SHOW — REBOOT
Take the Song Cure: it's been seven years since we had a peek into Dr. Ruth's therapy sessions. We get to ask "What's it all about, Alfie" and give out song prescriptions for those pesky issues of love life and work-a-day strife. Beth Halevy, Ceylan Cankurtaran, Evelyn Danner, Leona Zions, Robert Scheible, and of course wise counsel from Dr. Ruth Fuerst while Claudia Hommel, her trusty receptionist, has issues of her own. Bob Moreen will be at the piano. He may be a bit crazy, too.
Doors open at 2:30. Light refreshments will be served.
Suggested donation is $20. VIPs donating $30 or more get our special thanks in support of financial aid for workshop participants.
Reservations are being taken at our RSVP page and 773.509.9360.
