Wayne Brady

  • Where you first saw Wayne Brady: on both the British and American versions of the improv comedy game show Whose Line is it Anyway?
  • What made Wayne stand out: while all of the cast members are funny, he might be the best singer and dancer
  • Proof of that: Wayne was the only star of the show to take home a Primetime Emmy Award
  • And further evidence of those singing talents: his debut album, A Long Time Coming, made the top 20 on the Billboard R&B charts, and his cover of Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come" earned a Grammy nomination
  • A few of his television roles: he was Barney's brother on How I Met Your Mother, Liz Lemon's dreadful date to The Source Awards on 30 Rock, and an extraterrestrial threat on Stargate SG-1
  • Probably the most surprising role: a nefarious version of himself on Chappelle's Show
  • Where you've seen him lately: as the host of Let's Make a Deal, or guest judging on So You Think You Can Dance
  • What to expect from the show: a comedic performance that utilizes the improvisational talents that made him famous, and plenty of audience participation
  • What not to expect: judgement by Drew Carey

The Chicago Theatre

The beaming vertical letters of "C-H-I-G-A-G-O" ascend six stories high on a sign that seems to be the establishing shot for any movie set in the Windy City. Tourists and natives often stand outside snapping pictures of the marvelous marquee, where the biggest names in music, theatre, and comedy are writ large under a miniature replica of Paris's Arc de Triomphe. The Parisian aesthetic continues inside The Chicago Theatre’s grand lobby, which recalls the Royal Chapel at Versailles with its gallery promenades. The staircase ascending to the Grand Balcony resembles that of the Paris Opera House, rounding out a French Baroque architecture that would would cause Louis XIV to do a spit-take. Inside the seven-story high 3,600 seat auditorium, terra cotta tiles, crystal chandeliers, and luxurious drapes gives audiences visual overtures before every show.

As vital to Chicago as hot dogs and mustard fire hoses, The Chicago Theatre was America's first munificent movie palace upon its 1921 unveiling, where it was declared "The Wonder Theatre of the World." Beyond its silver screenings, the theatre became a beacon for live entertainment, as artists such as John Phillip Sousa, Duke Ellington, and Benny Goodman filled its first 40 years with oompah and swing. After a multi-million dollar restoration in 1986, the landmark venue remains the heart of art in the city, attracting the world's most popular entertainers to its stage almost every evening of the year.
