The Producer

Roberta Miles is a Chicago native and captivating performer guaranteed to make your jaw drop in shock and cheeks hurt from laughter. Miles is an award-winning monologist, published poet, Jazz singer, and staple figure in the Chicago art community.

The Host

Master of ceremonies Richard Norby is a pithy performer possessing ineffable aplomb and personality.

The Venue: Labyrinth

The name of “Labyrinth” evokes a metaphor.   It captures  one’s  journey into the center of self and finding meaning there.  We emerge from the labyrinth’s center with greater wisdom through self inquiry, creation,  and exchange within the community.   The Labyrinth’s mission is to build community  and develop wisdom through art.  They are organized as a not-for-profit entity.

Who is the show for? Anyone really. The short, tall, grumpy, friendly, laughing, crying (crying only from laughing), long haired, bald, etc
