Kevin Sherman, managing director of Citadel Theatre in Lake Forest, lives in Evanston with his family and loves our local theater scene. He’s been busy this spring preparing for Citadel’s 4th annual summer gala—a 1940s-themed fundraiser titled “Big Band Vintage Glam,” held at Highland Park Country Club on Saturday, July 15 (call 847-735-8554 or visit citadeltheatre.org/gala for tickets). When he’s not looking for the next big play to produce, here is how this busy father stays on trend.
ON HIS MOBILE
“I love the TodayTix app! Gives me great deals on theater tickets in Chicagoland. I also use Life360, even though my daughter calls this app creepy (and she’s probably right) I like it because it helps our family quickly find each other during our busy days.”
ON HIS NIGHTSTAND
“My daughter gave me Life After Life by Kate Atkinson and I’ve been slowly stumbling thru this excellent time travel book about a woman who fights evil again and again. Also some classic baseball cards my son gave me from my favorite team: not the Cubs, but the Mariners. I’m a proud Seattleite.”
IN HIS EARBUDS
“I love comedy and narrative nonfiction. Huge fan of Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me. Been listening to the Third Coast International podcast for some great short documentaries. And yet I also love pop. My kids have me hooked on 103.5 and 94.7. My taste ranges from Rihanna to the Beatles (love XRTs Breakfast with the Beatles on Sunday mornings).”
