Will Schutz

Chicago actor Will Schutz died today after a battle with pancreatic cancer. I had the privilege of acting alongside Will in a couple of shows, and saw him perform in many others. He was a gifted actor, a complete professional, and a great guy to grab a beer with after the show. He was one of the people who defined, for me, the meaning of Chicago theater: Honest, fearless, and a little silly.

Good show, Will.

(My apologies to the photographer. I stole the picture from Will's Facebook profile. It's my favorite shot of him.)

Coming Soon to a Bus Stop Near Me...

Courtesy of the Indiana Atheist Bus Campaign, we'll soon be seeing this lovely poster emblazoned on the sides of CTA buses:

Catchy, clever, and sure to piss off a whole lot of people. I cannot wait.
