The month of gay geek in Chicago comes to a close. Had an awesome time this past weekend at Geeks OUT: The Arena and I'll be closing out March with a piece in Route 66 Theatre Company's NEXT STOP called "Roshambo" which mashes up gaybros, gaymers, and the straight brahs that love them. Check it out, we run March 28 and April 11 as part of Steppenwolf Theatre Company's After Party .

Anyway, onto the books!
