The first time I went to Johnny Boys Graduation, at Boni Vino Restaurant, I didn’t know quite what to expect. I tried to get as much video as possible to share with you all, but I had so much fun, that I forgot to press “record” most of the time. So, when I was invited back, this time- I was ready! Together with Theresa Carter of The Local Tourist, MJ Tam of Chicagonista and Steve Green of NetUpNow, we celebrated Johnny’s release like only enthusiastic Chicagoans can! We sang, we danced, we ate (a lot), we drank, we “talked back” and we laughed- oh how we laughed!
Johnny Boy’s Graduation was created my the same guys that created Tony and Tina’s Wedding; and although I didn’t see Tony or Tina (it was before I moved to Chicago), I can hardly imagine a more lively celebration! The actors CLEARLY love what they do and after a glass or two of wine, you may find yourself playing along in your best (or worst) Italian accent. Capeesh?
This is one of those nights that reminds you why you live in Chicago in the dead of winter- the people! I whole-heartedly recommend that EVERYone make a point of seeing this well-oiled night of talent, surprise and Chicago-style silliness! You WILL have lots of fun (unless, of course, you’re just a stick in the mud) AND most likely want to go back and take friends and family- I did! Don’t wait, either…. They keep adding shows, but you wouldn’t want to miss it, would you?!
AND… Because we are all friends of Johnny Boy, I’m gonna give you an offer you can’t refuse… Enter “JenChicago” in the code box when you order your tickets, and you’ll save $5! Madonna Mia! Let me know how much you love it, after you go! Ciao!
