Want to know what your mom was thinking? Professional singer and amateur mom, Caryn Caffarelli reveals that - spoiler alert - parenting is hard, we become our mothers, and mother doesn’t always know best.

Caryn has spent decades of work in the field, soothing babies, picking up toys, enduring eye rolls, and surviving the college drop off. After many meltdowns, mostly her own, she was made better through motherhood. In MOMufactured, Caryn weaves tales of epic mom fails and triumphs with clever arrangements of songs from Rod Stewart’s “Forever Young”, to Frank Sinatra’s “That’s Life”, and even the disco sensation “I Will Survive.” Caryn also sprinkles in parenting resources and tried and true tricks of the trade. With Andrew Blendermann on piano and back up vocals, and under the smart direction of Chicago theater and film veteran Dale Calandra, MOMufactured gives us a peak inside the mind of a mom, and reminds us why parents sign up for the job in the first place.

Teetering on the tightrope between humor and pathos, Wendy Parman takes us on a journey of shapeshifting through life, in story and song. With the incomparable Beckie Menzie on piano, she traces her path, from actor/chameleon to Brechtian chanteuse, to rockabilly roots siren-adapting, evolving…forever in search of a place to land.

The evening will feature original songs, including collaborative works, from a variety of projects over the years. (And at least one Kurt Weill song, because she can’t help herself.)Genre mashing not optional.

When you think of Audrey Hepburn, you think of timeless beauty. But Audrey was so much more than a pretty face and a killer clavicle. From WWII refugee to Academy Award winner, from UNICEF beneficiary to UNICEF ambassador, Audrey lead a remarkable and exemplary life. Actress, fashion icon, wife, mother, and tireless humanitarian, Audrey is as much beloved today as she was half a century ago. Join acclaimed Chicago cabaret artist ("... a tour de force of cabaret, opera, and jazz." Chicago Tribune), Hilary Ann Feldman for her touching, funny, and enlightening tribute to this extraordinary woman... all to help the people of Ukraine.
Skokie Theatre has donated its space, and Hilary has donated her performance. All proceeds from this event, beyond modest expenses, will go to UNICEF's relief efforts for Ukraine, just as Audrey would have wanted.
