We may be able to see with the naked eye and superhuman speed of bird vision would satisfy some curiosity new research suggests that engaging with the arts can be good for your health and hey this is good news for me. I love me a good trip to an art museum or an evening out to see a musical so tonight the day this episode drops seeing musical. The Saturday I'm going to video game music themed concert in two weeks seeing river dance the night after that. I'm going to Chicago Shakespeare Theater now. My Gosh pretty much obsessed with theater and the arts and musicals. Wow so I'm patronizing all of the arched like the stuff that you create when you play saxophone all right. You're welcome. Thank you even though I haven't seen you performance is really good. Thank you so according to a recent study from University College edged London patronizing the arts. Could keep you alive longer. You heard that right the more often you engage with the arts the lower your risk of death this this new research included participants from the English Longitudinal Study of ageing for this researchers looked at over six thousand English people over the age of fifty and unmeasured how often they attended concerts theatre opera museums and art galleries and this is back in two thousand and four when their data was first collected then twelve years years later the researchers circled back to see how the arts lovers were doing. The researchers found that people who engaged in arts activities once or twice a year had a fourteen eighteen percent lower risk of dying during the follow up period than those who never visited a museum or solid concert. The people who engaged in arts activities even more often say every few months or more had thirty one percent lower risk of dying during the study. I guess that makes me pretty much immortal. You might be thinking. The the difference could be chalked up to a person's economic or social class me be wealthier people who have access to better diets and easier lifestyles and higher quality healthcare also so happened to go to the museum. More often to the researchers did think about this economic disparity to and they corrected for that engaging with the arts was still linked to a longer life even after the researchers accounted for a range of economic health and social factors.

So yeah, that's that Chopin theatre, but this stage seven seven three which is in the Belmont corridor, which is right down the street from where I performed Tony.

They're one of them was one of my nieces productions my niece took some sort of. Schick, some sort of theater classes, I don't know when she when they were living here when she was young. We went there to see a children's production, which was very nice financial is very nice. And I do love the intimate space blackbox theatre kind of deals that they have there. Well, cool. Have you been there before I have been there for many show over the years? But yeah, I just you know, it just struck me because you're, you know, talking about the accessibility of the opera and First Chicago fringe opera performance. I saw felt like musical. It was all that woman is only an hour. It was a one act. It was just an hour long. And then you're out two hours, which is not bad some some shows and we've commented on this in the past show, some shows tend to go a little long little a little too much some other performance performance. Not there. But just other performances in general. I I also just got to say real quick, you know, what what didn't go along with Thursday, my wife, and I went to the Chicago Shakespeare theater, they are doing hamlet really right now. And it was unbelievable. It's the one on navy pier. Yeah. Absolutely go. See I didn't get you know. I have no media context there. No one's pay me to say shame. It is the it is the second most enjoyable performance. I yeah, I really really enjoyed it. And it wasn't even full. There were a lot of empty seats. So I don't know what it is wrong. But if you don't I mean, if you don't think the you want to go, see hamlet. You have not thought about it enough. If you think that you don't want to see it. Well, Cody now I've seen Shakespeare in Stratford-upon-Avon. So I don't know if seeing. You know, what a tool a tool I saw because that show I didn't understand at all. What I saw Stratford-upon-Avon. I I have no idea. It was like a second or third tier Shakespeare show with reminded me of Mad Max beyond thunderdome. It was insane. It would there was there. Actually, we're motorcycles. And people with Mohawks, and I was like, whoa. What's going on here? It was it was what do you know, how many venues around town have discounts for people under thirty five and forty. No. I wouldn't know that. Well, I did not seriously. Due to listening, and you're like around my age like mid thirty s or younger like the lyric opera has recently. I believe maybe the CFO does coca millennial discount. I think they call it. The we need to get young people in our theaters. A lot of our audience is gonna you know, they're up there in years. Going to those events is expensive. Also that it costs a lot of money to be cultured. Yeah. But you get big discounts. If you want to go to the Chicago Shakespeare theater, so really young listening to this, dude. Take a date night. It's so good and it runs like three hours, but it flew by flu by speaking of culture. There's some there's a big k pop festival happening at Soldier Field tonight. Sweater budget's been reporting on the traffic last night. The the kids. I don't know how many of them are. They're like, no, no. There are seven in BTS. There are seven members of BTS. They are the preeminent k pop band. The boy now there's k pop which for the uninitiated is Korean pop. There are female k pop bands. But BTS is one of the biggest as evidenced by the fact that you cannot go on lake shore drive now because there's a million you can't teenagers sound take you a couple of hours, but be others. Heavy Trump real you're gonna call it. You're going to. That's what you choose to argue with me about no, I'm I was trying to be facetious, and I failed you failed miserably they did appear what two weeks ago on Saturday Night Live two weeks ago, and they won like every major ward almost at the latest news ical awards having billboard or whichever one was on about a month or so ago.

"Comedians slash comedic actors here on the show. Another incredible story of struggling on the way up also in Chicago as it happens came to us from Timothy Simon's, you know, Timothy as Jona Ryan on the hit HBO comedy veep. But long before that show Timothy was a struggling actor living in Chicago where he worked a lot of odd jobs. I worked backstage at the Chicago Shakespeare theater, and that sort of got me into this world where I was a stage carpenter furlong time. I would like dishing for plays at night and try to like be in rehearsal at night, and I would build sets during the day. And and then when I started focusing more on on camera stuff I needed to have my days free. So I started working at bars. And I was abound, sir. Joe zone Weeden Chicago, which on the Colbert show. I did. In fact, say it is the worst bar in America. And I I wanna let everybody wanna let your listeners know that I stand by that they're turned their Chicago Tribune article a couple of days after or the day after and the last paragraph was we reached out to Joe's on we'd for common, and we have not heard back. I just love that. I was able to troll them so many the worst job I've ever had really because everybody I don't know if you've seen me like at the time, I was probably six five one eighty and I'm not kidding. I was the biggest dude on that staff. Everybody else who was the manager of security. Joe's on they didn't obey didn't have one their their thought process was we're not going to get him with size because it's such a big bar was like we're not going to get him with size. We're going to pay twenty five people six dollars an hour. So if something did happen. We would literally just overwhelm whatever. It was with body. You know, okay. It's like would you rather fight a horse size duck or ducks side? We were a hundred bucks is going after these dudes like this weird mid western country bar that also had a hip hop shows. And one of my first nights working was a ghost face killer show, and then no just him. Just go sees and he had opening acts. It was all going fine. It was running really late. Like like, I mean, he was supposed to go on. I think it like ten thirty or eleven and nobody even heard from him like he was not only not going on. He wasn't anywhere to be found. And so like the whole night had started late. They rolled out the opening acts a little bit late and people were people were not super happy about how long it was going. And so I still I told this story on Colbert. And there was something that and the reason I bring that up is because something happened afterwards, which was really fun. So after Colbert not after the right dots. So basically a phrase, I've never said myself after the right? The right Agricole there. So. You haven't told me why they putting at comes on a New York City, New York City. Hip hop duo and one of them. I think maybe the crowd wasn't super in new songs. And so he got upset, and I think he's exact words were Chicago hip hop. I'm all about New York City from what I remember fighting where we were serving glass bottles that night. I first mistake and immediately they started raining down on stage and one of the guys in the band. I don't think the guy is somebody a bartender told me this later somebody reached behind the bar and grabbed a tequila by a full Cuervo tequila bone Huck did at the stage and it hit the other guys. Oh base. He runs off stage the whole place lights up all my God. Somebody I find this out. I was reminded of his later. Somebody took a couch and threw it from the balcony on. Boston was bad. Yeah. I mean at some point fourteen cops showed up I was wearing a shirt that said Joe zone. We'd on it. And I asked her name my manager like what I should do. And he said, he didn't know. And so I just or stop it. But somehow he was like, I dunno just stop it. And so I just took the shirt off. And I turned it inside out and just pretended..

"I'm an I am so excited to talk to Katie yo who is the founder and executive artistic director for able on samba will really she's going to explain it far better than I can. But it's theater for those who have down syndrome and other developmental disabilities. Katie thank you so much for your time Daffy the topic deal and tell me again what what able stands for. We are artists breaking limits and expectation, okay? So that encompasses the people that you guys are working with putting on stage teaching about theater, and as you mentioned in our first segment. This isn't just for us. This is moving into young adults and even into adulthood. Last week. I talked with the FOX valley special recreation association about the programs that they put on and then work with in the park district's. But also the other there's twenty seven of the special recreation associations in the Chicago land area, one of the things that I was shocked about and I'm thrilled that you said that you have an adult program now is once they turn twenty two. They don't have school to go to any more. These people who have been in these programs their whole lives soon. Now that you have the adult program. This provides them another outlet of something to do ways to learn on and on. Yeah. And I think it's it's even more important as you mentioned because it is such a such a stark transition. Literally on your twenty second birthday, you're out of school. So you know, if that falls in the middle of the year, it's it's it's really hard for people. It's hard for people no matter where all the we started with a group of actors as they mentioned in the first thing that we will work in six actors when we started at DJ's playhouse in and as we started to see them making that transition. It was really. Overwhelming. The the kind of stark differences, you know, in in what the outlook is and and I think especially because evil work with people across the spectrum. You know, if you say we work with people with down syndrome means a lot of different things individually meet with down syndrome is gonna have their own that is of needs in their onset of abilities. And I think that, you know, there are some people who are very verbal, and they're really, you know, traditional communicators, and and they might have job opportunities or they might be able to pursue one of these kind of secondary education programs. That's better popping up. But there are some who don't who aren't as quote, unquote, traditionally employable as at them, and you know, and then they've got nothing, and you know, a lot of state funding is going away from some of these programs. So you just wind up with people who who have nothing to do. And no one to do it. Right. So we thought it was really really important for us to to make this adult program happen. And this is our first year of it right now. And it's very exciting to be able to kind of branch out our programs this way, and to keep, you know, keep relationships with the actors we've seen growing up. Now, we can, you know, help them into their adulthood and see how they grow which is great. And additionally, it creates a camaraderie for them, a group of people who are like them who they are comfortable with and have reporter with, you know, it's it's nice for kids in in traditional schools to have played aids and develop friendships that continue on throughout their lives. This these these actors and performers are no different. Yeah. It's you know, when we started our team programs. And we were kind of asking the families, you know, when when when we sent for for us to run programming. Additionally, they really wanted it on a Friday night with the teens because sure they're all in high school and a lot of doctors. Now are you know, in mainstreamed, education, included education, and so all the other two didn't school are making plans for the weekend. And we're going to the movies on Friday night or we're going to the concert on Friday night or I'm having a sleepover on Friday night. And you know, then you got our guys and made it necessarily have something do so able gave them something to do on a Friday night and for that to say, oh, that's cool. All right. That's what I'm doing for my Friday night. That was the big thing, you know, to kind of keep that social elements of things as much as as we're working on this whole creative side. And we're building plays when we're worrying all of those theater skills. The the social side of things is super important for us. And with the adult program, it's really about about filling the day, you know, especially if they're living at home, mom, I go to work or whatever. Then you're still able to say I have something to do with with my day. So they come to us actress can be with us from ten AM to three PM. They can stay with us for the whole day. Or are. They just a half a day, depending on what they what they need and whether availability like some some of our and jobs or they've got other programs that they're involved in. So we try to stay open as much as we can. So this provides them a safe outlet. They're learning. They're they're learning more about themselves. They're learning about theater and about the arts in in in general, let where are you guys located? We don't have a fixed location. We partner is Mike Golic and wingo. Weekday morning at five on ESPN thousand personal partner is the Menominee club which is in Lincoln park down on north off of north avenue rape behind apple. And then for our performances, we partner with professional houses around the city. So we worked with garden, do you? Whereas if you trust, and we have a beautiful friendship with Chicago Shakespeare theater, a really really grateful for for them kind of taking us under their wing and we've done multiple performances there. So they're very kind to us for for our shows as well. And that's out at navy pier. Yeah. Down here. It's so lovely. So and they've got you know, they've got three different theaters play in. So we we now have that right septa after our December shows were we'll be in the upstairs theatre. So we can say we've been in all of their. That's so nice. Yeah. And also giving an opportunity for your actors to be in professional theatres that that many actors aspire to perform in as well. I I that's a huge piece of it. You know, anything get really legitimize. What we're doing and as much as we're, you know, we're working on we're focused on them. You can't make theater without an audience. You know, that's why we do it. And I think for an audience to come and see this group of individuals up on this stage in in a respected venue like that. I think it. Sits the power a little bit. Traditionally from from how we look at people with down syndrome, how he look at people with with autism, or you know, with some of the other differences that are that are actors has. And I think that for an audience to see them up there in the position of strength is really important thing. Yeah. I mean acting and holding an audience's attention and the stage presence there is a lot to that. Which would allow people to see those performers in in maybe a very different light where they're not seeing it as a disability. But they're seeing their abilities. I discern. And that's that's what we're hoping for an agent will walk out. And even parents will say, you know, oh my God. I've never seen my daughter do that. And the people who know them best surprised by by some of the things that happen. I'm we're really blessed. I I can't talk about the work. We do not mentioning are volunteers beautiful team of volunteer. Facilitators to many of whom are also professional actors, you work around the city, and they volunteer their time with our unsolvable birthing were artists breaking limits and expectations. And that's as much about. Nothing with an audience's expectations and preconceptions over what individuals are able to accomplish. And we have a really wide spectrum of actors who work with us as well. So you mentioned memorization. And what we do our shows cause short term memory, especially for those down syndrome can can be a struggle. So rather than pressuring are actors to memorize lines have a fantastic team of civility eaters volunteers to our professional actors or artists in their own, right? And they partner with our actors. So in each performance, you'll have an actor paired with either one of our teaching artists or facilitator and the facilitator will drop in their lines. So we will feed whatever the word is. And then the actor can repeat that back with whatever LaRouche, and and intonation, and however, they best communicate and some of them that might be repeating back. Verbal leave for some that might be signing or miming or moving. So they're able to. Communicate. However, they best communicate and express themselves harbor, they best express themselves, and then our facilitators kind of help bridge the gap for our audience between a more like traditional the experience, and whatever actors are able to to throw up. Okay. So we're we're trying to to me everyone where they where they shine best. All right now. One of the things that I loved best doing in the theater was actually all the behind the scenes stuff. And we're going to talk more about that in our next.

In different pipes that really this. City is now a model for, spreading culture to the neighborhoods and that's a wonderful thing, to be so proud of Yeah Right, well it is and also it's world, class. Entertainment I, mean this is The Chicago Shakespeare theater and what they do and what Barbara does. Is considered by, most to be among the finest.
