Fight for the Title: Battle of the Barbers

All three barbers at Jesse’s Barbershop are in an epic one month fight to see who is the best barber in Chicago’s Northwest Side.

Jesse, Rhett, and Mike are boxing it out by getting as many clients as possible and cutting their hair between August 15 and September 15. After each hair cut, the client will be able to cast their vote for the BEST barber!

Jesse's Barber Shop Chicago will also be making a donation to a local school. Clients will also cast a vote for the school of their choosing. The school with the most votes will get the donation.

Book your haircut to participate!

LUNA at the Filament Theatre

LUNA at the Filament Theatre

Filament Theatre LUNA Horizontal.jpg

Filament Theatre brings to the stage Ramón Esquivel’s LUNA directed by Filament Resident Artist Alejandro Tey. This story about the daughter of migrant farm workers was developed in collaboration with elementary children in Mattawa, WA, a town predominantly populated by migrant farmers. Tickets are currently available at www.filamenttheatre.org/luna.

Luna tells the hopeful story of Soledad, a young girl who dances with the stars and sings with the moon. Her family follows the crops and with every move comes a new school and the struggle to make new friends. The imaginative Soledad finds solace in her constant companion, Luna — the moon. On her search for human friendship Soledad must challenge the world she knows and discover that “Taking risks is hard to do, but taking risks builds courage too.”

In an artistic statement, playwright Ramón Esquivel wrote, “My stories are about the search for belonging. They are about vulnerability. Most of all, my stories are about conflict between people who love each other. I hope my stories inspire empathy, connection, and wisdom—and that they make audiences laugh along the way.”

Luna will feature Filament Resident Artist Aissa Guerra with Jean Claudio, Gaby FeBland, Mateo Hernandez, Deanalís Resto, and Raquel Torre. Understudies include Elizabeth Nungaray and Isaura Flores.
