The "Loose Chicks" will be opening the 2013 season @ The Lincoln Loft, 3036 N. Lincoln on January 11, 2013 @ 8pm. The second Friday of the month rings in the New Year with Jillian Erickson & Roberta Miles, the original "Loose Chicks." Holly Beaudry will be this month's featured guest.
Holly Beaudry, a Rhode Island transplant has become Chicago's very own. She's one half of the fabulous improv duo, "Slightly Altered", a stand-up comedienne and monologist often featured @ "Café Cabaret." She is currently in the process of preparing a one woman show.
Jillian Erickson is a performance artist, monologist, poet, writer, pain in the ass...She moved to Chicago to do exactly what she is doing and couldn't be giddier. She is the successful co-producer, co-director, and performer for the all female cabaret BEAST WOMEN 2012. Beast Women recently celebrated its 107th performance at The GreenHouse Theater in Chicago. She is also part of the film company, JAkT Films, and a series called "Myths" which is a combination of paint, sculpture, and spoken word.
Roberta Miles, best known to Chicago audiences as a jazz singer and painter, has rapidly gained a reputation for her irreverent autobiographical monologues that make up a tell-all expose of her quirky, edgy life. These monologues are the basis for her one-woman show, which debuted summer, 2009 at the StrawDog Theatre. Roberta has appeared with Jason Paul Smith at the Skokie Theatre Foundation in Skokie, Illinois in a two person show called "Hot Dish: The Monologues." She is also the co-producer of "Café Cabaret" which runs monthly at "Café Ballou" in Chicago. Roberta is an award winning monologuist and a published poet, soon to be a published author.
