The Lady with All the Answers
Generations of Americans got their advice from the legendary, syndicated newspaper column of Ann Landers—or the competing column of her twin sister. But even those who never penned a plea for relationship help, or harvested Ann’s advice on politely expelling houseguests, still live in a society that’s been shaped by her unprecedented candor. Willing to talk about addiction, religious clashes, nude housekeeping, and the best way to hang toilet paper, the columnist’s multi-decade run slowly informed the way many households thought about topics both taboo and mundane. While many don’t even know her real name, or what she looked like beyond her well-worn author photo, The Lady With All the Answers takes audiences into Ann Landers’s apartment—and into her personal life. Set in her Chicago abode in 1975, it chronicles Ann’s struggle with heartbreak of her own, prompting the LA Times to call it “a smile-inducing, tear duct-activating reunion with a woman who might have been a stranger but seemed like family.”

About Genesee Theatre
Genesee Theatre began its life with a sellout. Opening its doors on Christmas Day, 1927, it welcomed audiences to four sold-out movie screenings, but those flickering stories weren't the only attraction. A $25,000 pipe organ—and that's in old-timey dollars—immediately caught the eye, while Italian marble, a stunning chandelier, and the building's Spanish Renaissance–style architecture dazzled.
Over the years, many changes occurred, the glamorous quotient rising or dipping with the times and the theater closing altogether in 1989. But when it reopened again in 2004, it was back in full force. Antique chandeliers and fixtures of the period had been brought in from around the country, the luxe carpet had been recreated from a 1927 photograph, and all the dust bunnies had been sent packing with generous severance packages. Yet not all the updates were of the old-fashioned sort: the stage was doubled in size, and cutting-edge technology was brought in to give the theatre's high-voltage visitors, from comedians to musicians, the star treatment.
