Gary and Felix McNamara are failures. Despite Felix’s get-rich-quick schemes, it seems that their Chicago recording studio is never going to reach the heights of success that the once-promising McNamara brothers always dreamed of. When Felix decides to use the studio to record “Song Poems” with the help of their assistant Janice and in-house musicians Butch and Marvin, there might be hope yet to save the studio. They just have to convince Lady, the overbearing trophy wife of their absentee landlord. Will this group of failures turn their fortunes around? Or is the studio doomed?

More about Summer, Inc
The Summer, Inc. program began out of a desire to extend the program’s nurturing environment to Chicago’s professional performance community. Recognizing the importance of hospitality, particularly in a moment when the arts are faced with acute economic challenges, when basic expenses make the creation of new work more of a conceptual wish than a pragmatic reality, UC Summer Inc. invites companies into our artistic home. Selected groups represent the city’s boldness in its artistic approaches which has been demonstrated through projects of solo performance, clown adaptations, dance, and multi-media work. All of the new work developed reflected the University’s commitment to interdisciplinary collaborations. http://arts.uchicago.edu/content/summer-inc
