FALL 2014: Witch Slap!
by Jeff Goode
We've been promoting this show since the first read through and have heard great things. Sadly, we've been shooting travel features out of state and we've been swamped since they opened and haven't made it over there to review. Still, check it out if you can. We are long time fans of Babes With Blades and so stoked that they call Chicago home. We've seen them tackle some amazing works over the years.
Like Hunger Games and women as protagonists who don't just lay around like the Disney coma princesses, waiting to be rescued? Come check out some real life women who kick booty with sword fights & stage combat.
Here at ChiIL Live Shows, Babes With Blades have been favorites of ours for years. Their shows are aimed at adults, but my tweens adore them, too!
“Under Delia Ford’s direction, the actors take on their roles with distinction…Kimberly Logan (Crone) anchors the show with cackling wisdom…(Stefanie) Johnsen nails the physical comedy…Jennifer L. Mickelson garners laughs from her stoic presence…Loren Jones charms as the high-strung-witch-in-training” – Katy Walsh, The Fourth Walsh
Mass hysteria grips a colonial town as public witch hunts pit brother against brother. But when local witches attempt to band together to stop the madness, they quickly discover that sister against sister can be far more wicked.
Directed by Delia Ford* Violence Design by Maureen Yasko*
“…The cast assembled by Delia Ford for this Babes With Blades production swaps vaudeville chat with precision timing…” – Mary Shen Barnidge, Windy City Times
