Win a pair of tickets to the Chicago premiere of Bootycandy



This week I'm giving away a pair of tickets to the Chicago premiere of Bootycandy, the “fearlessly unpredictable” (Los Angeles Times) semi-autobiographical play written and directed by Robert O'Hara. As a young, precocious boy, Sutter (played by Chicago actor Travis Turner) has to quickly learn what it means to be gay and black and as he grows up, he must also learn that no one person will be able to tell him the meaning of love, life, sex or race — he’ll have to define those for himself.

To win a voucher redeemable for a pair of tickets to any Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Sunday performance February 2 through March 31 [subject to availability], please email your name to deepdish73@gmail.com. Entries close at midnight on Thursday, January 19 (CST).

Previews for Bootycandy begin January 25 at Windy City Playhouse (3014 W. Irving Park Road) and the production runs through April 15. Tickets can be purchased at the Windy City Playhouse Box Office online or by calling (773) 891-8985. Performances run Wednesday (7:30pm), Thursday (7:30pm), Friday (8pm), Saturday (2pm and 8pm) and Sunday (3pm).

Actor Dick Gautier, who died Friday at age 85, was best known for his roles as Hymie the Robot in six episodes of the 1965-70 sitcom, Get Smart, and Robin Hood in the 1975 ABC sitcom, When Things Were Rotten. Other television credits include the 1967 CBS sitcom, Mr. Terrific, and the 1973 ABC sitcom, Here We Go Again (with Larry Hagman). He was also the host of the syndicated game show, It's Your Bet, from 1970 to 1971.

Gautier received a 1961 Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for his performance as rock and roll star Conrad Birdie in Bye Bye Birdie. He also appeared in the feature films, Ensign Pulver (1964), Divorce American Style (1967), Fun with Dick and Jane (1977) and Billy Jack Goes to Washington (1977).
