PJ Paparelli, the artistic director of the American Theater Company, a highly respected and nationally accomplished director of new plays, the co-author of such potent works of documentary theater as “Columbinus” and “The Project(s),” and one of the Chicago theater’s most formidable and complicated talents, died Thursday while on vacation in Scotland, following a car accident earlier in the week.

The David Letterman tributes of the last few weeks have felt like the first big family reunion after your brother's divorce. You're so happy to see so many beloved old faces back together again, and yet ... you know there's a good reason for it, and God knows you can't bring it up, but still — you miss Stephanie.

In the late summer of 2013, the actor David Dastmalchian was in Chicago starring in an indie feature called “Animals,” which he also wrote. The plot itself may be fiction, but nearly all of the movie's the details are rooted in a period of Dastmalchian’s life, about a year or so after graduating from DePaul University, when a heroin addiction became all-consuming.

The best way to describe the Sweets & Snacks Expo is this: Close your eyes. Hold your breath and spin around until you're woozy. Then think Willy Wonka in a polychromatic Alice In Wonderland landscape, where free samples of candy, chocolate and savory snacks are spread out over four acres of McCormick Place. This place is a mindboggle of calories and carbohydrates.
