Come celebrate or mourn and breathe a sigh of relief the day after one of the most bizarre presidential elections in modern U.S. history with the debut of Pivot Arts’ Live Talk series. Part performance, part live talk show, this unique evening includes quirky performances, interviews, live music and the very special, Pivot DIY. The entire evening will be hosted by the charming and entertaining playwright/performer ISAAC GOMEZ

Line-Up Includes:
Jim Lehrer and the Theater and its Double and Jim Lehrer’s Double
A Staged Reading of New Work By Theater Oobleck’s Mickle Maher. Maher’s play THE STRANGERER was a sell-out success and commentary on the debate between John Kerry and George W. Bush. His newest work is a comic-gothic-horror tale sequel to THE STRANGERER featuring a fictional Jim Lehrer as played by beloved Chicago fringe actors Colm O’Reilly and Brian Shaw.

The?Unicorn?Hour?
created and performed by clowns and physical comediennes, Leah Urzendowski and Anthony Courser, The?Unicorn?Hour? will enthrall and entertain and is like nothing you’ve seen before. Come bring joy!

The Pivot DIY
demonstrated and performed by Ida Cuttler. Ida, fabulous Neo-Futurist performer, gives us an election-themed do-it-yourself lesson.

PHENOM, one of Chicago’s most important Unsigned Spoken-Word/HipHop Artists and co-founder of The LYRIC Mentoring Organization founded in 2009 is on a mission of cultural and community reform thru Hiphop. This electrifying artist, trained by Michelle Obama will present “The Rise” from his latest album release “I Didn’t Come I Was Sent”.
