A "Chicago Noir" story set in 1950s Chicago, about an out of work bartender named Billy Snow and his journey to find a job and get his life back on track.
Written and narrated by David Floodstrand featuring vintage period Chicago photographs and illustrations, live performances of classic jazz standards and original music,
Billy Snow is a peak into the dark side of Chicago nightlife in the 1950s, as we are taken for a ride into the dusty smoke filled strip clubs and honky tonks along Clark Street, to the apex of night time entertainment, the exciting Chez Paree night club, widely considered to be the finest night club in the country at the time.
Vocalist and actress Shara Maxwell and David Floodstrand sing a number of well known songs of the time as well as self penned music reflective of the era. Directed by Carla Gordon and musical direction by pianist Tommy Muellner.
From penthouse to pavement, Billy Snow is Chicago noir come to life on stage.
