Demigod Dave on Stowaway!

November 1, 2011

Demigod Dave Wilhelm is featured in this week’s Aesthetically Speaking on the pop culture/travel/social justice blog Stowaway:

This is more than a job. It’s part of who I am, as cliche-ridden as it may be to suggest it. It is integral to what it means to be me and were it removed I would feel that I was no longer myself.

Hear the Dave perspective on artistic influences, the commodification of art, desk-riding, and Transformers 4. There there be dragons.

Thanks to Stowaway, one of our favorite Chicago-based blogs. Writer Lisa Findley’s brilliance is evidenced here and here and here.

It’s been two weeks and the first reviews are in.

“*****…Monks in Trouble has a terrific cast and is a thought provoking, humorous play.”

“Sam Bailey had a wonderful presence…Rich with fantastic banter…each actor brings a unique quality to the characters….This show is perfect for this venue.”

“The five very talented actors, two who stand out, Dan Cooney and Ken Craig take their audience on a journey seeking the answer to a soulful mystery. This is perfect entertainment for a weekend.”

See what Chicagoans are talking about. Tickets are still available for this week’s performances of “Monks In Trouble.”
