Soul One

Everyone within the sound of my cyber-voice: if you live in Chicago or want a reason to visit, why not check out Soul One, a new play written by and costarring my friend, Travis Hughes. It runs Fridays and Saturdays throughout April, at the National Pastime Theatre. Tickets are only $15. There’s a special premiere this Thursday, March 31st, at 7:30. Read below for more information, then click the link to buy tickets.

Clock Productions will present the World Premiere of the musical “Soul One” by Travis Hughes opening Thursday, March 31, 2011 at 7:30pm at The National Pastime Theater, 4139 N. Broadway, Chicago.

A thought provoking comedy about a rock star who regresses to his past lives and discovers ancient memories and the source of his soul’s suffering. Along for the ride are his group of companions who return over and over again as different incarnations of past encounters.

Appearing in the cast are Travis Hughes, his real life brother Ryan Hughes, along with Josh Baker, Robbie Bersano, Gemma Crowley, Donaldson, Linsey Falls, Amy France, Katy Nielson, Ilana Plen, Chad Ramsey, Nikos Brisco and Sasha Walloch.

The show is directed by Jesse Stratton with Don Alsifi as Stage Manager and David Denman as Producer and Set Designer. Costumes are designed by Sienna Macedon with Sound Design by Laurence Bryan and Props by Keely Haddad-Null. Lighting Designer is Steven Besic and musical composition by Nikos Brisco

“Soul One” opens with a special Thursday performance on March 31 at 7:30pm. Thereafter the regular run is Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm to April 30. There are no performances on Easter Weekend (April 22-23).

While you’re at it, why not check out Travis’s first novel, The Book of Perry? I read it last year and found it alternately funny, tragic, and thought-provoking. It’s worth a read. He put out his second book, The Primrose Path, in August. I haven’t read it (I only just now discovered it on Amazon — thanks for the heads up, T-Ride), but I did just download it to my Kindle. It appears to have won an Amazon.com Breakthrough Novel Award in the category of science fiction, and guess what? The Kindle edition is free. Free, I tells ya!
