Former St. Charles resident Paul Wiley never really saw himself as a musical theater-type guy. Through much of the past decade, Wiley could be found performing at Windy City rock venues like Metro or Double Door in bands like Egostatic, Jupiter Blue and Royal. But that changed when Wiley, 41, was hired in January as a guitarist for the national tour of the hit 2009 Broadway jukebox musical “Rock of Ages,” which returns to Chicago at the Bank of America Theatre starting Tuesday, March 11.
‘Cosmos’: A fond return to the vastness of space
When astronomer Carl Sagan’s landmark PBS series “Cosmos” first aired in the fall of 1980, the Voyager 1 spacecraft was flying past Saturn and its moons, sending back astonishing images of worlds never seen up close. “Cosmos” is back Sunday night (airing on Fox and then repeating on Monday nights on the National Geographic Channel). It’s a 13-episode remake/update hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, a worthy heir to Sagan’s legacy. This new “Cosmos” arrives just when we seem to need it most.
Sunday picks: All aboard for the Lego Train Club show
The Northern Illinois Lego Train Club displays a variety of model buildings and a running Lego train set at the Lego Show at the Geneva History Center. If you love comedian Charlie Murphy from TV's “Chappelle's Show,” then don't miss his set this weekend at the Improv Comedy Showcase in Schaumburg.
‘Gravity’ director Alfonso Cuaron turns to TV
Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuaron was looking for an anti-”Gravity” follow up to his blockbuster space film, and he found it with a rare excursion into television. Cuaron and sci-fi auteur J.J. Abrams (“Lost,” the “Star Trek” movies) are executive producers of “Believe,” a drama about a child whose supernatural powers put her and the world at risk. The premise came to him while he waited during “the endless process of special effects” on “Gravity,” Cuaron said at a media event.
Haven't we seen 'Resurrection' before? Sort of
“Resurrection,” a solid yet initially disturbing new drama premiering at 8 p.m. Sunday on ABC, is about a small Midwestern town where people who died and were buried years ago (and, most important, were grieved) begin showing up again. Not as rotted-out zombies but just as they were on the day they died. Waitaminnit. You feel as if you've heard about this before, don't you?
