Experience History and See an Amazing Play: American Blues Theatre’s “Looking Over the President’s Shoulder”

**** Recommended ****  “Looking Over the President’s Shoulder” is one of the best new dramas I’ve seen this year.  James Still’s real-life, very personal drama about Alonzo Fields, White House Butler for more than twenty years, is chock full of history.  There’s also tiny bits of insider gossip about the four Presidents he served.  He really brought them to life!  “Looking Over the President’s Shoulder” gets 4 Spotlights.

American Blues Theatre’s production of “Looking Over the President’s Shoulder” runs through March 6th at the Greenhouse Theater Center, 2257 N. Lincoln, Chicago.  Running time is 90 minutes, no intermission.  Performances are Thursdays and Fridays at 7:30 pm; Saturdays at 3:00 and 7:30; and Sundays at 2:30.  Tickets range from $29-$39.  Street parking is available.  Free parking is also available in the Lincoln Garage (formerly the Children’s Memorial Hospital Garage) about a block and a half north of the Greenhouse.  FYI (773) 404-7336 or www.americanbluestheater.com .
