You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to kick off 2018 as part of Steppenwolf's LookOut Series-Steppenwolf's performance series that presents the work of artists and companies across genre and form. We're delighted to welcome Midge Wilson to YBR to share a story with us ... learn a little about Midge here and get your tickets!
For over 30 years, Midge Wilson taught Psychology and Gender Studies at DePaul University. She took an early retirement, and in an attempt to find a new life passion, has taken a lot of different classes, including painting, knitting, improv, memoir, guitar, stand-up comedy, and live-lit performance. Some have been a better fit than others.
What do you love, what can you not live without?
My favorite thing is a Grammy Award Medal that I inherited from my long-time partner who died in 2011. The category was only "Best Packaging", but still.. . I would be immeasurably sad if this item (awarded to non-winning nominees) was somehow lost or stolen.
