For Joe Leonardo, directing “La Cage aux Folles” at The Marriott Theatre was like catching up with an old friend.

'Resident Evil': Still suffering beautifully after all these years
“Resident Evil” is a high-definition remaster of a 2002 remake of the original 1996 PlayStation game about a secret police group who end up marooned in a hillside mansion overrun with zombies. The 2002 remake was a high point in video game history. Thirteen years later, its layers of delicately intertwined systems are as powerful as ever. Yet the persistence of its power is evidence of a lost future, a style of design, emotional manipulation, and technological trickery that's been mostly abandoned.

full story »Ron Onesti: The ‘Yankee Clipper’ turns 100Just a few weeks ago, Yankee legend Joe DiMaggio would have turned 100 years old. I know when it came to memorializing this legendary figure, it was the fans from Chicago who stepped up.
full story »Ron Onesti: Give my regards to BroadwayI recently visited the “Big Apple” for talent-buyer meetings, as I do a few times a year, and each time I am absolutely marveled at the intensity of this great city.
full story »Ron Onesti: The Zamboni … still as smooth as everI am a huge Chicago sports fan, really loving all the excitement and pride that goes along with it. One of my particular favorite experiences is to visit the boys on the ice, my Chicago Blackhawks. Another unsung hero is something that really goes unnoticed, while at the same time is a focal point of the experience: the ice-smoothing machine known as the Zamboni.
