This weekend we saw writer-performer David Kodeski's excellent play, "And Some Can Remember Something of Some Such Thing", which is part of Live Bait Theater's "Fillet of Solo" festival of solo performances. Actually, Kodeski's play was extended for three weekends after the end of the festival, which gives you some idea of how well it's been received. The show, concerning the author's memories of growing up in a Polish family, finishes its run this weekend at Live Bait, and tickets are still available. Fans of Kodeski's witty tales of real life recollections (as also heard on This American Life and Chicago Public Radio) should definitely check this show out.
